In the timeless and resounding Zen Mind, Beginner’s MindShunryu Suzuki weaves a book whose threads lead to much rumination on the finest strands woven within the ‘Zen Mind’. 

True to his essence, Suzuki seamlessly explores part of Eastern Philosophy, and some of the best ideas and practices that have transitioned from Eastern Culture to Western Culture, such as mindfulness, the importance of breath, and even open-mindedness.

Through the exploration of analogies, edifying ideas that encompass character, calmness, overcoming obstacles and more, the book features a veritable treasure trove of wisdom within this book, all within captivating stories imbued with such profoundness that they are quite memorable.

On a personal level, the tenets the book provides have not only allowed me to become a much more incredibly mindful and open-minded individual, but vastly more capable of employing surgical concentration on asks which used to muddy my mind by default.

What’s more, Suzuki explores additional concepts such as the value of proper repetition, otherwise known as deliberate practice, the pivotal importance of practicing focus in your life, as well as the timeless and incisive value of simplicity, among other things.

For anyone traversing into Zen realm for the first time, or simply seeking to mental a template to create 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 over 4 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 reacquaint myself with core philosophical concepts that are required to have a sound and robust mindset in all circumstances in life.

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

That, above all, is why you owe it to yourself to get this book.  Before you begin achieving compound growth, a sound, robust, and highly capable mindset that can remain calm within a storm must become part of your essence, so that you may be able to tackle all obstacles in life.

And Zen Mind Beginner’s Mind, helps achieve all of that, and more, in spades.
