Albert Low is the director of the Montreal Zen Centre. I conjectured at the time that Mr. Low might come from a Christian background, as that was the context in which his words seemed to make the most sense. This book confirmed that.

Comments to eBook The Butterfly's Dream: In Search of the Roots of Zen (Tuttle Library of Enlightenment)

The content and approach of this book is very similar to that in Low's book Creating Consciousness, where the same themes are perhaps a little more completely developed. What I like about both books is the way he uses words so skillfully to take us backwards to awareness before words. Also, unlike many writers who explore Zen and meditative awareness in general, he does not accept the pablum of peace and serenity as a final goal, but throws us headlong into the paradoxical nature of our experience of self and not self. The self can't be done away with (though this will sometimes happen). Self consciousness serves a very valuable function. We just need to understand what it is so we can see beyond it.

This book illustrates in entertaining detail how large and significant is the spiritual life. While the ideas underlying Zen Buddhism have been around for centuries, it is only during the last 50 years that European and American roshis and senseis have enabled new forms of approaching the living heart of enlightenment. The many faces of "I don't know", the "on/off" thinking, the "me-as-center and me-as-periphery", the paradox of the center, the omnipresent issue of pure awareness and so on draw the reader into the amazing world of knowing and being in a vital new way. Training methods of Japanese monasteries have undergone much modification through the creative work and assiduous struggles of Western Zen students in the past, now Zen teachers, such as the author of the present book. He is the director of the Montreal Zen Center. He is a layman who has devoted 30 years to practice and to assist others in their way to awareness and awakening. He received the full trasmission as a teacher of Zen from Roshi Phillip Kapleau. He belongs to the second generation in the West, that is, grasping the roots of Zen spirituality withing the context of Jewish, Christian and Sufi cultural and religious backgrounds. There is a French version of this book.
