The Path of the Human Being

Zen Teachings on the Bodhisattva Way

by Dennis Genpo Merzel


Original Shambhala Publications Hardcover edition


“Clear, crisp, and intimate. Readers new to the subject will gain a clear perspective on Zen practice as it really is, and seasoned practitioners will find much here to support and clarify practice. This will also appeal to readers interested in the development of Buddhism in America and how the essentials of a tradition can adapt to the demands of the modern world.”                      Library Journal

 “Genpo Roshi invites us in a direct, no-nonsense language to transform ourselves and the world around us. He makes the Zen way clear and accessible to anyone who is willing to engage it. A must for every Zen library.”

John Daido Loori Roshi, Abbot of the Zen Mountain Monastery

“Genpo Roshi gives those who have never meditated a chance to see their true face and experience the oneness of life.”

—Roshi Bernie Glassman, Zen Peacemakers

“The value of this original book lies not only in its clear presentation of Zen teaching, but also in the long experience and the depth of insight of its author.”

—Roshi Robert Jinsen Kennedy, Author of Zen Spirit, Christian Spirit
