ZEN BRIDGE The Zen Teachings of Keido Fukushima Edited by Grace Schireson and Peter Schireson Wisdom, 2017; 182 pp., $14.95 (paper) The late Keido Fukushima was the leader of one of the main Rinzai Zen sects in Japan. This collec- tion, an English translation of his dharma talks, provides an engag- ing introduction to the depth and breadth of his teachings. Here can be found not only his interpreta- tions of classic Buddhist texts, but also his thoughts on Buddhist phi- losophy: Zen as the religion of Mu, the Buddhist take on compassion and prejudice, why satori is not like LSD. There are also instructions on zazen, koan practice, and monastic training. There is a lively, human quality to the varied writings that the editors have chosen. Fukushima Roshi was a master of the telling anecdote, whether it is hearing D.T. Suzuki lecture for the first time or his own Zen training. THE DHARMA OF DOGS Our Best Friends as Spiritual Teachers Edited by Tami Simon Sounds True, 2017, 193 pp. $17.95 (paper) A dog was never just a friend to Sounds True founder Tami Simon, who edited this collection of essays on the deep truths offered by our canine companions. Simon makes the case that pooches are heart healers and teachers who possess unique powers and properties. The writers and teachers in this volume agree. Rev. angel Kyodo williams learned about the nature of love from her canines. Lama Surya Das says dogs can lead us to a “sacred space of the moment.” In her relationship with her various pets, Roshi Joan Halifax discovered kalyanamitra— spiritual friendship at its best. Perhaps, in the end, it is as Mark Nepo writes: “God made the animals as raw breathing elements, each closer in their way to one aspect of being.” ♦ REVIEWS A Zen journey through illness, faith and love with Reverend Robert Kaku Gunn “A powerful and inspiring video about the braiding of faith traditions, and great open heart of practice. " -- Roshi Joan Halifax, Upaya Zen Center When Bob Gunn found he had pancreatic cancer, he applied his experience as psychotherapist, Christian Minister, and Zen Priest, creating a unique path through the fear and uncertainty.
