Zen Misconceptions

I have just finished reading a book called, ZEN Wrapped in Karma and Dipped in Chocolate written by Brad Warner who is a Zen teacher.


As a Zen practioner and therapist, I have often had to explain to clients who thought that I had something special, or some privelege that meant that I was not above getting stressed or screwed up in any way, so I can certainly applaud Brad in the way he takes away this illusion that Zen teachers are spiritually superior and completely enlightened.

A great read that gives the reader the truth about Zen practice, Zen masters and enlightenment.
