The Essence of Zen

a series of talks by Sangharakshita

Ah, the classic 'Essence of Zen' series... Unfortunately, the recording of the introductory lecture in this series has been lost. It showed how Zen is a branch of Mahayana Buddhism, and corrected several misunderstandings about Zen then current in the West. Each of the remaining four lectures (of variable sound quality) takes for its title a line from a famous verse of Zen poetry.

Series given in 1965
