Zen Heart, Zen Mind is a compilation of various talks ('dharma talks' in the Zen tradition) delivered by Zen Master AMA Samy to his students during periods of intensive Zen practice.
Addressing beginners as well as advanced practitioners on the Way, the book gives a full taste of Zen, with emphasis on Zen in our every day lives. "What is most important," he says, "and what we are called to do, is to live from the Realization of oneness and non-duality in our ordinary life. In ordinary, daily life, Realization of Emptiness is a matter of living and loving wholeheartedly—seeing, hearing, and responding to life and reality... it is a way of being present to ourselves and others and the world; being aware, accepting to live life to the full, responding to the call of love and life."
Master AMA Samy is the only Indian so far to have received the Dharma Seal of Enlightenment from a recognized Zen master.
