Quick read walks you through the experience of a German philosopher to learn Japanese archery in ita spiritual Zen form.

The book walks you through the transformation, this process is hard, takes several years and leads to a kind of non conscious state.

The most practical translation I have read of Zen in an accessible format.

Somewhat stilted in style but at 81 pages, some insights into the progress and challenging facing a Zen archery student. Fascinating to have done this in the 1950s.

In this wonderful little book, Mr. Herrigel, a German philosopher who came to Japan and took up the practice of archery toward an understanding of Zen, gives an illuminating account of his own experience. Through this expression, the Western reader will find a more familiar manner of dealing with what very often must seem to be a strange and somewhat unapproachable Eastern experience.' --from the introduction by Daisetz T. Suzuki

Mi sono stupidamente tenuto a lungo alla larga da questo libro del 1948, temendo forse le derive dei circoli new age in cui a volte è citato. Scopro con piacere un testo improntato al rigore e a quello che definirei, in mancanza di un'idea su un termine migliore, pudore nel parlare di ciò di cui, per forza di cose, parlare è così difficile - e forse inutile - perché del tutto legato all'esperienza. Ispirazione utile per chiunque si senta vicino a un approccio contemplativo all'esistenza.
