En el Zen nada puede sustituir al contacto directo con un verdadero Maestro de los angeles Transmisión, y menos aún un libro.
En l. a. entrada de las bibliotecas de los monasterios Zen japoneses se puede leer una frase caligrafiada: "Este es el dedo que señala los angeles luna." Un libro no puede ser más que un dedo que señala l. a. luna. l. a. luna representa l. a. auténtica Verdad de nuestra existencia. Un libro puede tener el poder de hacernos dirigir nuestra mirada hacia esa Verdad. Un Maestro Zen debe tener l. a. facultad de ayudarnos a llegar a ella.
Por esta razón, los angeles presente obra no es un guide Zen, no es un recetario, no está hecho con esa intención. Su pretensión es los angeles de familiarizar al lector con el mundo del Zen y los angeles de despertar en él reflexiones importantes acerca de su vida cotidiana.
Las explicaciones prácticas pueden ayudar a aquellos que ya practican en un Dojo, o en solitario, y espero que sean útiles para acercar a l. a. práctica de los angeles meditación a aquellas personas que, bien por desconocimiento, bien por indecisión, aún no lo han hecho.
