|Seen by many as a contemporary classic, Janwillem van de Wetering's small and admirable memoir records the experiences of a young Dutch student--later a widely celebrated mystery writer--who spent a year and a half as a novice monk in a Japanese Zen Buddhist monastery. As Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, author of "Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism," has written, "The Empty Mirror" "should be very encouraging for other Western seekers."It is the first book in a trilogy that continues with "A Glimpse of Nothingness" and "Afterzen."|

What makes this account extraordinary is that the book contains none of the convert's irritating certitude."-- Time Magazine "What is accessible is the day-to-day description of life, of the monks themselves and of the others he met, of the jokes they played and the food they ate, of the moments of satori, the explosive moment of an understanding surpassing understanding."-- Los Angeles Times|
