Nun Shundo Aoyama is one of the most respected contemporary Zen masters in Japan and the West. Abbess of the Zen nun training temple in Nagoya, Japan, where many Western practitioners have stayed, she recalls in this book, intended for a wide audience, several significant events that she experienced as privileged moments to awaken to the depth of the Buddhist teaching.
From her entry into a temple at the age of five and her years of training in the post-war period, to her lectures as an eminent master, she shares with us her life as a Zen nun who follows the course of things with fluidity. Joyful and difficult moments, encounters with masters and laypeople, experiences of illness and separation, travels abroad and discovery of other cultures, she communicates her faith and wisdom in a language full of sensitivity.
Every moment of life is an opportunity to deepen our spiritual path, she tells us, and this path is endless. A precious book.
