An inexhaustible source of the mystical
wisdom of Zen
This book is based on “the Ten Ox-Herding Pictures of Zen,” a
classic of Zen literature from the 12th century. It counts among
the fundamental and essential works of Zen Buddhism.
The book portrays the spiritual path to realisation by means
of a story, illustrated in picture and verse, of an ox-herder
searching for his lost ox – his true self.
Zen Master Zensho’s invaluable annotations are an expression
of his enlightened consciousness – exceptionally clear,
readily understood and true-to-life. They are highly practical
and a unique orientation aid on the path to self-realisation.
These enlightening explanations give us a new opening to
a clear understanding of the mystical meaning of the Ten
Ox-herding Pictures of Zen.
