One of the vital aspects of traditional Rinzai Zen koan study in Japan is jakugo, or capping-phrase exercises. When Zen students have attained sufficient mastery of meditation or concentration, they are given a koan (such as the familiar “What is the sound of one hand clapping?”) to study. When the student provides a satisfactory response to the koan, he advances to the jakugo exercise–he must select a “capping phrase,” usually a passage from a poem among the thousands in a special anthology, the only book allowed in the monastery. One such anthology, written entirely in Chinese, was translated by noted Zen priest and scholar Soiku Shigematsu as A Zen Forest: Sayings of the Masters. Equally important is a Japanese collection, the Zenrin Segoshu, which Mr. Shigematsu now translates from the Japanese, including nearly eight hundred poems in sparkling English versions that retain the Zen implications of the verse.

This novel is about one man's journey into the heart of his country and his own soul. Like the movie "Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, And Spring Again," it's like indulging in a monastic retreat in itself, exquisitely calm and beautifully restorative, and pointedly observant about human nature and the circles of life. It's a novel about Zen, meditation, qi gong, koans, haiku, and the actinolite cure for a broken heart. It's about a monk who says, "Zen is not in books!"
