Edward Espe Brown - The Most Important Point

Author Edward Espe Brown reads from his book on Zen, food, and life itself

Featured Book: The Most Important Point: Zen Teachings of Edward Espe Brown

From master baker, cook, and Zen priest, Edward Espe Brown, comes a collection of timeless essays on Zen, food, and life itself.

Brown was one of the first Westerners to be ordained a priest by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, who had hoped that Zen might be transformed into a vibrant new form in the West. In The Most Important Point, Brown fulfills Suzuki’s wish with 60 essays that are distinctly American, yet preserve the roots of traditional Japanese Zen.

Drawing from his time in the kitchen and on the cushion, Brown explores a range of topics, from basic sitting practice to making the “perfect” biscuit and much more.

Flavored with wise insights and irreverent humor, The Most Important Point brings together a treasury of teachings to inspire your own discovery.
