Ok, yes I've got one Zen book, japanese Zen. It's not watered down, it's based on teachings from a center in Japan. It's "The three pillars of Zen" by Roshi Philip Kapleau. It covers the lessons of Zazen as taught by Yasutani Roshi, it then uses 10 private dokusan sessions with westerns to explain many common questions. After that, it talks about enlightenment experiences. It is a good book, but likely watered down compared to lessons recieved from a teacher. I've also heard of pureland, I didn't know Chinese practiced it. Anyway, thanks for your response, anything I can learn is appreciated. Metta.
