THE IRON FLUTE 100 Zen Koans

by | Read by Ken McLeod

Philosophy & Religion • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1964

The deepest knowledge in a spiritual tradition can be found in its stories, and in Buddhism these stories are the ancient Koans, used by Zen Monks for centuries to stimulate enlightenment. This collection of Koans was compiled by eighteenth-century Japanese Zen master Genro, who, along with his disciple, Fugai , and a living Zen master, Nyogen Senzaki, comments on each Koan. The lessons are timeless, thought provoking, and utterly satisfying to hear, especially as condensed here and read with so much compassion and authority by McLeod. Listening repeatedly makes them sound even richer and more connected to the heart of what spiritual seekers want. A treasure, deeply soothing to the ear as well as the soul. T.W.
