From a Dharma successor to the late Shunryu Suzuki-roshi comes Breath Sweeps Mind, an invitation to experience the living presence of a true Zen master. With more than 40 years of experience practicing traditional Zen, Jakusho Kwong-roshi removes some of the mystery surrounding this enigmatic philosophy. Here is clear instruction in its core principles and how it relates to our everyday world, including methods of zazen meditation, why delusion is inseparable from enlightenment, turning our light inward, and more. Breath Sweeps Mind presents a refreshing and easily accessible transmission of Zen practice to help us return to our own profundity ¿ which is always with us ¿ and realize the richness of this very moment.

I loved it

This is a slow moving dharma talk with lots of space to experience the void between words. I found myself soaking it in. There is a lot of wisdom within. It isn't like a lots of recent Buddhist marketed self help type audios that are sort of a hyped sales pitch for whatever method is new. It's like an old school teacher talking to his students. I found it very refreshing and I learned a lot. Felt like a zen retreat.

Complete. Effortless. Wonderful.

....took a walk with it... came home and sat with it on my mind.

Was one of the first times listening to an audiobook where, once I put it down, I felt perfect, at ease, calm, and held a kind of internal peace that I've never really experienced before. And I'm no stranger to inner peace and calm. I'm a life coach, and it's what I do. But with that I'm incredibly picky when it comes to information, especially integrating new information. ...this book, .. is perfect.

I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the subjects of peacefulness and release. I'm grateful that I found this book. Jakusho Kwong-Roshi thoughtfully speaks on the subject with ease and clarity, and with such a way that you identify with him and his words effortlessly.

Pretty cool feeling after listening to an audiobook on a subject that I'm no stranger of.
Nice work. ...very nice work.
