Book Description

The mind of Zen Buddhism is revealed through authentic sacred art and profoundly simple wisdom. Zenga art, Zen-inspired brushstroke paintings, surprises and confounds our expectations. Although created by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century monks who were amateur painters, they have a startlingly modern appeal. The Gitter-Yelen collection of Zenga paintings is widely regarded as one of the preeminent collections in the West. Each month, the Zen Mind 2012 Wall Calendar features a Zenga masterwork paired with quotes from Not Always So by Shunryu Suzuki (1905-1971). Suzuki-roshi was considered one of the most influential Zen teachers of his time and was a direct spiritual descendant of thirteenth-century Zen Master Dogen. A Zen Mind 2012 Engagement Calendar and a Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind journal are also available. The interior pages of this calendar are printed on 100% recycled, 50% post-consumer paper, processed chlorine free and printed with soy based inks. In addition to printing our products on recycled paper, Amber Lotus Publishing continues to plant trees and offset our carbon footprint with NativeEnergy.
