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

Though a bit enigmatic at points, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind is still quite accessible to individuals from all walks of life.  There is a veritable fountain of information within this book’s well, and its up to the individual to draw as much as one needs.

Overall the book shows countless 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, or simply seeking to mental construct a platform for a sound mindset, this book should be deeply pondered.  It synthesizes many every-day topics in a simple to follow manner, and does so in a way that is not only rich in scope, but practical in application.

After having this book for nigh 3 years, I can honestly say this is one of the books that I gravitate to the most when I find myself needing to get centered, lacking focus, or simply wanting to inculcate some core concepts that are required to have a sound and robust mindset.

The significance of this book is in its ability to aid the reader in becoming cognizant of the mind in ways hitherto unconsidered and in learning how to maintain an open mind under all circumstances creating a more capable mindset.  And until a sound mindset is coupled to an individual’s repertoire, critical growth will not take place – an individual’s maximum potential will not be achieved.
