Review for The Ghost Cave Review by Donald Fong


Excellent teaching of important Zen basics. Straightforward approach laced with humor. Rev. Loori's teachings should not be missed by novices and other interested parties. Might be a good idea to have handy a Zen glossary, as quite a few terms may be unfamiliar to the uninitiated. (Posted on August 3, 2011)
