this ebook can be read in epub/mobi/pdf formats
zen wisdom takes the reader on a journey of gradual awakening, which echoes the traditional zen story of 'the ten bulls'
each section of this book corresponds to a step on the path to enlightenment, beginning with quotes from the 12th-century chinese master kuo-an shih-yuan, followed by inspirational thoughts of the day from the great zen masters
the zen journey is not a direct one, however, and readers will find themselves at different stages at different times
but the tale of 'the ten bulls' is a powerful metaphor, in which the bull represents the seeker's self, which he or she must find, master and eventually relinquish in the search for the essential oneness of all things
