Books from Compassionate Ocean Zen Center: Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind: Informal Talks on Zen Meditation and Practice by Shunryu Suzuki; Buddhism Plain & Simple by Steve Hagen; The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching, by Thich Nhat Hanh; Essential Writings by Thich Nhat Hanh
Whether you are brand new to Buddhism or have practiced for decades, there is something here for you. These four books, lovingly curated and donated by Compassionate Ocean Zen Center, perfectly embody this year’s theme, Rooting Compassionate Community. It is a joy to share community with the Compassionate Ocean Zen Center.
Compassionate Ocean Zen Center is dedicated to the central practice of awakening for the benefit of all. The activities of the Center cultivate awareness of the essential beauty and dignity of life coming from full engagement with life-as-it-is.
Compassionate Ocean Zen Center is named after Jikai Dainin Katagiri Roshi, the root teacher of Joen and Michael O’Neal. Jikai (Compassionate Ocean) refers to reality itself, which always holds us and bathes us with compassion. Even in times of great suffering, still we are held in the great ocean of Buddha’s compassion.
