Akhyayikas III 100 Insightful Zen Stories That Provoke Introspection

Author Name: Rajesh Seshadri | Format: Paperback | Genre : Self-Help | Other Details

Strangely, despite the human heart's abject need for the Truth, which is the only thing in which it may find liberation, people typically react to Truth with hate and dread. Therefore, the greatest spiritual teachers, including the Buddha, devised a method to circumvent the resistance of their followers, through stories.

A narrative has the intrinsic power to mould, inspire, motivate, coach, and leave a metaphorical impression on our subconscious mind. Storytelling is and has always been an important part of the solution. In a world that is overflowing with negative news, sensational broadcasts and dreadful predictions, the Akhyayika series of books are ordained and intended to stimulate, enthuse, uplift, nourish and enlighten.   

This, the third book in the series, is an anthology of Zen stories. Thousands of epigrammatic, instructive tales describing the realizations of past Zen masters can be found in the Zen canon. These stories have been specially selected, edited and embellished from a variety of sources that constitute mankind’s spiritual inheritance. 

Pick any story at random – they can be humorous, paradoxical, multifaceted, enigmatic or tantalizing – yet every single one of them will offer a plausible perspective and varying insights. As a spiritual being, allow these stories to sink into your subconscious and emancipate you.
