Publisher's Summary

In Sit Down and Shut Up, Brad Warner tackles one of the great works of Zen literature, the Shobogenzo by 13th century Zen master Dogen. Illuminating Dogen's enigmatic teachings in plain language, Warner intertwines sharp philosophical musings on sex, evil, anger, meditation, enlightenment, death, God, sin, and happiness with an exploration of the power and pain of the punk rock ethos. Riffing on his triumphant return to Ohio for a reunion concert of Akron punk bands, Brad uncovers the real heart of Zen, in teachings and stories with a sharp smack of truth.

Better than the amazing book

Yeah that says it. Really brought the book to life. Just finished it and I'm going to listen to it again. So much amazing content. As close as it gets to explaining the truth of what I am and what I could be ( or I am already, if you know what I mean ). Buy it.

Good, solid, reliable Zen Wisdom.

I like the way Brad brings Dogen's Zen wisdom into the 21st century. I've been studying and practicing Soto Zen for 25 years and as far as I can tell Brad's teaching pure Buddhism. I will read "Don't be a Jerk" next :-)
