Description

"Through vivid imagery, humorous anecdotes, and an irrepressible sense of astonishment, Katagiri Roshi reminds us through this collection of talks that the heart of Zen lies in the very moment we are living now." –Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs


Dainin Katagiri (1928–1990) was a central figure in the transmission of Zen in America. His first book, Returning to Silence, emphasized the need to return to our original, enlightened state of being, and became one of the classics of Zen in America. In You Have to Say Something, selections from his talks have been collected to address another key theme of Katagiri's teaching: that of bringing Zen insight to bear on our everyday experience. "To live life fully," Katagiri says, "means to take care of your life day by day, moment to moment, right here, right now." To do this, he teaches, we must plunge into our life completely, bringing to it the same wholeheartedness that is required in Zen meditation. When we approach life in this way, every activity—everything we do, everything we say—becomes an opportunity for manifesting our own innate wisdom. With extraordinary freshness and immediacy, Katagiri shows the reader how this wisdom not only enlivens our spiritual practice but can help make our life a rich, seamless whole.

Life Changing

I read this book when I was in my late teens. I was as some kids where at that time troubled, in to gangs and had no compassion for life around me. After reading this book a light turned on in my head and I completely changed the way I lived my life. I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with life's day to day hurdles and has a heavy weight on there shoulders. I promise you this book will alter your life!!
