Description About the author
 
A well-known spiritual saying goes, "Enlightenment is an accident. But we can make ourselves more accident prone." As an authentic American Zen takes shape, enlightenment continues to be misunderstood as a project to be completed, a goal to be achieved, or a prize to be awarded. Tim Burkettís new book unhooks enlightenment from the hot air balloon of ego and brings it back down to earth.
Drawing on stories of his first teacher, the Zen master Shunryu Suzuki (author of Zen Mind, Beginnerís Mind), and Burkettís decades of practice and teaching, he reveals how to live in the world with a deep joy that comes from embracing the work and play of this very moment. With the wisdom and humor of a seasoned practitioner familiar with all manner of eccentric fixations and silly dead-ends, he offers views and practices we can use to support the paradoxical process of letting enlightenment happen on its own.
Enlightenment Is an Accident: Ancient Wisdom and Simple Practices to Make You Accident Prone, Tim Burkett, Shambhala Publications, Paperback, 208 pp., $19.95
