Manual of Zen

Buddhanet ebooks' present Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki's Zen Manual.

A wonderful text that was written to inform lay persons about the literary materials relating to monastic life. The text contains Gathas and Prayers and a set of the Sutras most read in Zen, those being:
Shingyo (Pranjnaparamitahridaya)
Kwanongyo (Samantamukha-parivata)
Kongokyo (Vajracchedika)
Ryoga (Lankavatara)

The manual also contains literature from Chinese and Japanese Zen Masters. The Manual concludes with a description of the Statues and images of Buddha typically found in a Zen temple.
