This book explores the links between Zen and Japanese culture, and quotes such diverse luminaries as the mystic meister Eckhard to the scientist Albert Einstein to demonstrate that Zen is a way of living life fully and ultimately in the Here and Now.

In the western world, Zen is often misunderstood or thought of as being no more than an esoteric, meditative adjunct of Buddhism.

Its unique qualities are much more radical, having more in common with modern quantum physics in its approach to time and space. This book will appeal to students of Zen and Buddhism, and to anyone interested in relating these ancient disciplines to the new age of seeking and self awareness.
