Description

Life, Art and Teachings of Zen master Shinzan Miyamae. Produced on the occasion of his eightieth birthday, 2nd July 2015.

Meeting Shinzan Miyamae is like meeting a Zen master from the golden age. Openly critical of the institutionalisation of much modern Zen and emphatic on the importance of genuine insight, he has charted an unorthodox course. After business failure and attempted suicide, he became a monk and studied with some of Japan’s most realised Zen teachers. Over that time he became an accomplished Zen artist, and his works reveal a fearless, indomitable character forged over half a century of Zen practice. This book is a tribute to Shinzan Roshi’s life, teaching, and art work.
