Recommended Reading

We are often asked about book recommendations. Usually our recommendation is to "come to study group!", but in conjunction with that, many students have found the following books helpful:

  • Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind by Shunryu Suzuki

  • Heart of the Buddha's Teachings by Thich Nhat Hahn
