Zen Radicals, Rebels & Reformers

by Perle Besserman Author and Manfred B Steger Author

A book of innovative, nonconformist Zen masters whose spiritual prowess was often disguised by acting as drifters, beggars, or madmen. These unorthodox individuals were the revolutionaries who defined the radical Buddhist movement now known simply as Zen. This book contains the stories of the rebels and boat-rockers from 8th-century China to the modern day who remind us the pursuit of spiritual awakening is a direct rebellion with the very foundations of suffering in the world.
