Excerpted from Elegant Failure: A Guide to Zen Koans, copyright © 2010 by Richard Shrobe. Reprinted with permission by Rodmell Press. All rights reserved.

Zen koans are stories of exchanges between Zen masters and their disciples. These stories have long fascinated Western readers because of their wisdom, humor, and enigmatic quality. In Elegant Failure, author Richard Shrobe, who is a recognized Zen Master has selected twenty-two cases from The Blue Cliff Record, Book of Serenity, and Wu-men-kuan that he finds deeply meaningful and helpful for meditation practice.

Drawing on over thirty years of practice and teaching, he provides a wealth of background information and personal anecdotes for each koan that help to illuminate its meaning without detracting from its paradoxical nature.

Paperback, 256 pages.
