A daily spiritual wake-up call, with hundreds of quotes, koans, parables, and poems. At last . . . a lucid moment. A glimpse of beauty. A plainspoken truth that unfolds and radiates calm. Filled with gems from Zen masters, philosophers, writers, iconoclasts, saints, poets, and even comedians, the Zen calendar offers a year of insight, wisdom, and, of course, the paradoxical. Discover the Zen of Basho. Lao-tzu. The Buddha himself. Simone Weil, Franz Kafka, Gilda Radner, and Rumi: Look past your thoughts that you may drink the pure nectar of this moment.
