Lovely Zen tales read with a lovely voice. The music, though, is even more lovely than the tales! It is played with each story, then there is a long segment of uninterrupted music at the end of the 101 tales. What a beautiful ending it was! I plan to use this uninterrupted music for meditation...or whenever I need to soothe my soul...
Namaste... Jade Dragon
Audible's policy of rejecting a book and getting the credit back is very attractive.
"101 well known Zen stories"
Two thirds of this Audible 'book' is Japanese flute music, most of the stories are found in Ram Dass's work and the narration is amateur. Very disappointing.
"Gems of inner peace"
A great collection of stories. A great way to meditate, find inner strenght and practice inner dialogue. Very soothing and readsuring. Well read and easy to follow. It would be great if it came with an analysis as well.
A nice collection of Koans, each spaced out with a little music; so you have time to reflect.
A few of the Koans are obscure, but on the whole an enlightening listen!
"does exactly what it says on the tin"
BE WARNED, this book is not 3:45 minutes of zen tales, its 2:45 minutes of zen tales and 45 minutes of (not very good) music.
not sure why?
