Smiling Zen – In Search for Profound Significance of Living was written by Toru Matsui and published by Chobunsha, Inc, Tokyo on April 30, 1998. It was based on his lecture series broadcast by NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation, Japan’s national public broadcasting organization).


He tells how to live with smiles (taken from Zen koan of Mahakashyapa’s smile at the Buddha’s holding up a lotus flower) through Zen practice. He explains why and how to practice Zen following Tenda’s Shôshikan (Abridged Version of Cessation and Insight) with his profound experience and explications about questions arising from it so that anyone can understand and actualize.
