Entering the Mind of Buddha

Zen and the Six Heroic Practices of Bodhisattvas


Formats & editions


An inspiring guide to the practice of the Buddhist paramitas or "perfections" from respected American Zen master Reb Anderson.

The Six Paramitas--generosity, ethical discipline, patience, heroic effort, concentration, and wisdom--are among the core teachings of Buddhism across all its schools and offer gateways into the practice, in any situation, for newcomers and seasoned practitioners alike. They are nothing less than a foundational practice to enter and realize the mind of Buddha. In this sincere and powerful book, Zen teacher Reb Anderson offers teachings and practice stories that elucidate and open up each paramita. Taken together, the six "perfections" form an integrated and complete path--the path of the heroic bodhisattva who vows to practice ceaselessly for the welfare and liberation of all beings.
