Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0861713575, Paperback)

For over thirty years, Opening the Hand of Thought has offered an unmatched introduction to Zen Buddhism. This new edition contains even more useful material: new prefaces, an index, and extended end notes are here, in addition to the book's revised glossary and main sections. But then, the book's utility was never in question. As Jisho Warner writes in the book's opening, 'The Story of This Book and Its Author,' Opening the Hand of Thought 'goes directly to the heart of Zen practice [. . .], showing how Zen Buddhism can be a deep and life-sustaining activity.' She goes on to say, 'Uchiyama looks at what a person is, what a self is, how to develop a true self not separate from all things, one that can settle in peace in the midst of life.' By turns humorous, philosophical, and personal, Opening the Hand of Thought is above all a great book for the Buddhist practitioner.
