    A filosofia religi o zen budista algo muito bonito Diferente das religi es ocidentais que est o tempo todo julgando o que bom e o que ruim, quem bom e quem mau, o zen budismo uma cren a de aceita o, de toler ncia e de compreens o do mundo Enquanto as religi es ocidentais pensam que para se realizar tem de seguir uma moral, precisa se pagar d zimos e cotas religiosas em valores materiais, o zen budismo acredita que o que n o pagarmos nessa exist ncia, pagaremos na pr xima, afinal, n s tamb m constitu mos a natureza e, de uma forma ou de outra, continuaremos assim at o fim dos tempos Enquanto as religi es cat lico judaicas crist s acreditam que a culpa move as pessoas e que todos temos que sofrer pelos pecados, o zen budismo oferece caminhos de ilumina o N o s o dogmas, n o s o mandamentos, mas uma forma de compreender nossos atos e que motivos nos leva a tom los, tentando, assim, romper com o ego smo Dito isso, os ensinamentos desse Zen em Quadrinhos s o muito valiosos Contudo, a forma como eles s o apresentados, em v rias hist rias curtas, geralmente de uma p gina, acaba prejudicando o ritmo da leitura Tamb m a rea o dos personagens quando se percebem iluminados sempre a mesma, o que contesta um pouco a diversidade de apresenta es, seja do homem, da natureza e do pr prio budismo, que prega o zen Por m, um bom caminho de entrada para se entender a doutrina Uma pena que esteja fora de cat logo h muito tempo.

    This collection of comic strips is a wonderful distillation of Zen Since Zen is of a style of living than an actual religion, it converts well to bite sized snippets The tradition of Zen koans also lends itself to this presentation.I originally read this book in the early 2000s, during my college days when everyone is discovering and testing new ways of thinking and living I ve dabbled with Zen ever since After reading and absorbing Stephen Mitchell s beautiful Tao Te Ching A New English Version, these comic strips are even meaningful.I doubt you ll reach enlightenment simply reading this book, but if you study the lessons and ignore the finger pointing at the moon then you will certainly gain clarity.

    I like Tasi Chih Chung s comic illustrations Catchy and cute.These illustrations are basically a collection of Zen Koans each of them is enjoyable by itself but easily forgettable after a short time if one doesn t dwell long enough on it They are basically riddles or paradoxes that specifically made to make to stop logical thinking and only understood by some new awareness.Personally, I feel that Zen is some love child of Buddhism and Daoism It creates a refreshing view which can help in our personal struggles but a construct based solely on awareness may be too much to ask with regards to our other struggles

    There s nothing harder to accept for the mind made self than living in the present moment in a space devoided of past and future.These funny stories, beautifully illustrated, are food for the mind but not that kind of mind which refuses the Now The other one the mind that is your friend and capable of being still and silent when you ask for that.Bring it always with you and enjoy some relaxing moments of true wisdom.I think it would be a nice experiment to share some easy stories with your children and see what they can perceive and understand.Wishing all sentient Beings to be conscious.

    Zen Speaks is another book that can easily be read when a person has a few minutes to spare The book shares some powerful Zen proverbs lessons in the form of a illustrated stories Each story is introduced by a recurring character, the fellow depicted on the cover, and then the story itself uses actual Chinese historical figures to convey a message The message is then summarized in a blurb so that anyone not understanding the message in story form can still grasp the underlying ideas As with many profound truths, the ones presented in this book are deceptively simple and can be easily read, but perhaps not so easily understood It is said that a great Zen master once asked his student if he understood Zen and the student responded that he did not The master then responded Neither do I Enjoy.

    A great primer to Buddhism, and a genuinely enlightening book The parables used here are well chosen and beautifully illustrated One in particular always stuck out in my mind A monk s meditation is consistenly disturbed by a great spider that descends as he tries to focus When he tells his master, the master tells him keep a paintbrush beside you, and when it descends, paint a circle on its stomach He does so, and when his meditations end, he discovers the circle on his own stomach.
