There is possibly no greater living authority on the mystical aspects of both Oriental and Christian religions than Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki. Born in Japan, he has written a number of books on Buddhism, has travelled in Europe, lectured at American universities, and is now at Columbia University.
In this clear account of the essentials of mysticism, Mr. Suzuki has taken as examples the Zen Buddhism of the East and the reflections of Meister Eckhart. With a wealth of illustration and explanation, he shows how the Chinese sage and the German philosopher meet on common ground.
The second part of the book deals largely with Shin Buddhism, showing how the superficial differences between Zen, Shin and Christian schools are vastly less important than the fact that all three express the same fundamental Insights. The last part contains a selection of writings from Japanese mystics that is itself a unique achievement of scholarship. fP>& *n *te **e^ there is no doubt that this is one of the most important works to appear for a considerable time. Mr. Suzuki is the unchallenged master of this subject, and his book will have profound interest for all students of religious thought.
