Now and Zen

Notes from a Buddhist Monastery: with Illustrations



A charming introduction to Buddhist life and thought from a practising Japanese monk

'In Japan we have an expression, 'Float like Cloud, Flow like Water'. Its meaning is: to live free and unconstrained, like floating cloud or flowing water.'In this short introduction, Eiyu Murakoshi brings a refreshingly light touch to the philosophy and practice of Zen Buddhism. Reflecting on his own monastic life and the many lessons he has learnt through Buddhist teachings, this insightful and charming book, accompanied by Murakoshi's own illustrations, shares a warm and humorous perspective on life inside a temple.
