AbstractMany Zen Buddhist practitioners have come to question some of Japanese Zen's less democratic aspects-from the
strict, male-dominated hierarchies to the racial overtones. At the same time, modern American Buddhists often find it
difficult to integrate zazen (seated Zen meditation) with lives of family, work, and social engagement. This book offers a
fascinating guide to overcoming both these dilemmas. A study of how one Zen group returned to an ancient Chinese tradition
of community meditation practice without a leader or hierarchy, this book also outlines an authentic, "grassroots" approach,
urging people from all walks of life to come together in meditation and the study of dharma. Grassroots Zen focuses on the
challenge of truly becoming one with the moment in our frantically paced society; of finding a space for the passing self;
and of achieving balance between Zen practice and daily life, as well as individuality in community. A thoughtful and
absorbing work, Grassroots Zen is an important book for those seeking a practice that is truly of the people, by the people,
and for the people.
