From the back cover:
"This notable collection of translations and commentaries is designed to bring the Western reader face to face with the experience of Zen. Included in this volume are classic Hsinhsinming, setting forth the basic Zen approach; a gathering of the most famous mundoes, or question-and-answer exchanges, of the great Zen masters; and finally an important selection of koan, or riddle-like queries and incidents, from the Mumonkan, perhaps the most widely used instrument for the teaching of Zen. The result is essential reading for anyone interested in truly understanding one of the world's greatest spiritual and intellectual treasures."
