Zen Recommendation?

Posts: 56 Join Date: 1/7/14 Recent Posts
Does anyone know any good books about Zen? Is begginers mind good for people who aren't absolute beginners? Any ones on the "just sit"/ "do nothing" technique? I'm doing a book report on Zen so I figured it might as well be useful besides getting a grade.

Hey: Some titles that may be useful: Charlotte Joko Beck: "Everyday Zen", Steve Hagen: Anything, but especially "Buddhism is not what you think", "The Three Pillars of Zen" by Phillip Kapleau (I think, been a while), or "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind"

As far as "just sit, do nothing" check out Sheng Yen, or Dogen.
