Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki is a rather intricate but deep view into the mindscape of what the ‘Zen Mind’ entails.

Given that this book isn’t exactly for those in the nascent stages of Zen Buddhism, it can be quite enigmatic in some spots.  Still, this does not detract from the wealth of information the reader will be able to garner if they maintain an open mind.

Overall the book shows many insights individuals may follow to strengthen their core repertoire.

Some of the concepts the book discusses included mindfulness, the importance of calmness and focus in your life, proper practice, simplicity and much more.

For anyone traversing into Zen realm, this book is quite appreciated.  It synthesizes many complex topics in a simple to follow manner, and does so in a way that is rich in scope as well.

Reading this book will definitely help the reader become more cognizant of the mind in countless ways.

After having this book a while, and referenced it quite a bit, have a feeling that how much this book helps an individual is proportional to how much one focuses on each of the concepts.  It really is an excellent book.
