Riding the Ox Home

Riding The Ox Home

Stages on the Path of Enlightenment


John Daido Loori

This Riding Ox is a modern commentary sketching the spiritual encountered in Zen training.

I feel most of us, are investigating ourselves often, trying to understand our conditioning, our reactions, our views, our actions, etc. This little book is about discovering our truest nature.

Accompanied by ox-herding pictures and ancient poems, Loori’s modern commentary on understanding our ego is clear and helpful in training appreciation of self and understanding reality. Realizing ourselves and transforming our lives is important. Right judgments and constructive lifestyles (pleasure-time and work-time) enables us to have more full-filled days.

Reading Loori’s adaptation made me think about good and helpful ideas.
