Zen in the Art of Archery
Motivations to Read
Part of a collection of books I've purchased to gain a better understanding of Zen Buddhism. In this book by Eugen Herrigel, Zen is explored through his account of the six years he spent as the student of one of Japan's great Zen masters, and the process by which he overcame his initial inhibitions and began to look toward new ways of seeing and understanding. I was very curious about archery being a medium.
