  • Memories Of The Future
    Memories Of The Future (English, Paperback) Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky

  • The Sound of One Hand
    The Sound of One Hand (English, Paperback) Dror Burstein, Yoel Hoffman

    When The Sound of the One Hand came out in Japan in 1916 it caused a scandal. Zen was a secretive practice, its wisdom relayed from master to novice in strictest privacy. That a handbook existed recording not only the riddling koans that are central to Zen teaching but also detailing the answers to them seemed to mark Zen as rote, not revelatory....
