Originally published in 1936 and later revised in 1954 and 1958, Alan Watt's The Spirit of Zen was one of the first books to introduce the basic foundation of Zen Buddhism to English-speaking audiences. This volume still stands as one of the most lucid and concise explanations of the origins and defining principles of Zen, from its beginnings in ancient India and its later transmission to China and Japan, down to Mr. Watts's revealing portrait of the life in a contemporary Japanese Zen monastery.
