When The Sound of One Hand Clappingcame out in Japan in 1916 it caused a scandal. Zen was a secretive practice, its wisdom relayed from master to novice in strictest privacy. That a handbook existed recording not only the riddling koans that are central to Zen teaching but also detailing the answers to them seemed to mark Zen as rote, not revelatory. For all that, The Sound of One Hand Clappingopens the door to Zen like no other book. Including koans that go back to the master who first brought the koanteaching method from Japan to China in the eighteenth century, this book offers, in the words of the translator, editor, and Zen initiate Yoel Hoffmann, "the clearest, most detailed, and most correct picture of Zen" that can be found. What we have here is an extraordinary introduction to Zen thought as lived thought, a treasury of problems, paradoxes, and performance that will appeal to artists, writers, and philosophers as well as Buddhists and students of religion.… (mais)

Never before has it been possible for an English-speaking reader to experience the profound exchange which occurs between a zen master and his student. Here, for the first time, is the series of questions, or 'koans,' together with their answers, through which the zen master initiates the novice into the wisdom of Zen.

'What is the sound of the one heand clapping?' This first koan, which the inititate is asked upon entering the monastery,is traditionally given an extensive period of contemplation (sometimes up to three years!) during which the novice must come to know the critical difference between 'explanation' and 'understanding.' What is really required, as Mr. Hoffmann explains in this brillant commentary on the questions and their answers, is that the initiate abandon purely rational modes of thinking, and that he attempt to understand in terms of 'inclusion' rather than by logically differentiating among phenomena to exclude seemingly contrasting elements.

In the koan of the sound of one hand clapping, as well as in the two hundred eighty that follow, we are lead into the innermost, heretofore secret, exchanges of Zen learning.

Bibliography by Ben-Ami Scharfstein

I have steadfastly refuse to read this book because it is the equivalent of cheat notes for zen students. Though I am pretty sure a zen master will see straight through the cheat without a problem I rather work through the koans myself and not be tainted by something like this.

Just good to have a copy for my own reference on Zen history.
