Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0767906519, Hardcover)

Shunryu Suzuki said: "Life without zazen is like winding your clock without setting it. It works perfectly, but it doesn't tell time." These are the kind of wise quips that David Chadwick offers in To Shine One Corner of the World. Suzuki's biographer, Chadwick has never stopped looking for information about this always-entertaining and enlightening Zen master. In this collection of short remarks, Chadwick has continued the ancient tradition of recording a teacher's memorable quotes-- ones that are cute or puzzling the first time you hear them but that grow in profundity with time. With the publication of Suzuki's shining words here, his wisdom can illuminate many, many corners of the world. --Brian Bruya
