Lovely Zen tales read with a lovely voice. The music, though, is even more lovely than the tales! It is played with each story, then there is a long segment of uninterrupted music at the end of the 101 tales. What a beautiful ending it was! I plan to use this uninterrupted music for meditation...or whenever I need to soothe my soul...

As an editor for Zen stories myself, I understand how it is not an easy job to convey simplicity. The narrator does her job as a technical reader, but it lacks substance in conveying Zen. The recording also seems to lack warmth for her voice which adds a little to how disconnected it sounds from the content. So, combined with the narrators possible unfamiliarity with the simplicity and warm tone of Zen and the very empirical language that is employed by the book itself, I would not recommend this book very highly.
Great stories and the last 7 or so chapters with around 30 minutes of music for meditation. Really enjoyed and will listen to often.
Two thirds of this Audible 'book' is Japanese flute music, most of the stories are found in Ram Dass's work and the narration is amateur. Very disappointing.
