The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment - Praise

Part of the On Zen Practice collection

“The Venerable Taizan Maezumi Roshi’s teaching has caused true Zen to penetrate into people’s minds and has cut through the trappings of their ego-oriented intentions. Through his wisdom, Buddhadharma will shine into the world, dispelling the darkness of samsaric confusion and bringing the gentle rain of compassion.”—Chogyam Trungpa, author of Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, from the foreword

“Understanding of the nature of enlightenment and delusion are of prime importance to all spiritual seekers. Maezumi Roshi and Bernie Glassman clearly illuminate these topics in their book The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment. Their profound insight shines through the words in this classic book and will bring peace to those who fathom the depths of their teachings.”—Gerry Shishin Wick, Roshi, PH.D., Abbot of Great Mountain Zen Center and author of The Book of Equanimity and The Great Heart Way

“Maezumi Roshi was a remarkable teacher: subtle, meticulous and unpredictable. He had a depth and breadth of understanding that opened the hearts and minds of his students to the vast, mysterious web of existence and to the simplicity and wonder of our everyday lives. The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment is rich with brilliance and accessibility.”—Nicolee Jikyo McMahon Roshi, Three Treasures Zen Community
