This magic box of wonderpills: Suzuki's famous essay on koan study, now in your hands, wafted down into mine.Here was my first Zen book telling how sages make monkeys out of disciples, then set the monkeys free. How? You will see that when you (read) through this standard work on the art of releasing nothingness into the void. Instant self-help? Not quite, perhaps. Although it could be, of course. Isn't it the right time now? - From the Introduction by Janwillem van de Wetering
