The Light of Zen in the West

incorporating The Supreme Doctrine and The Realization of the Self

Following the success of the publication of The Supreme Doctrine in 1998, Sussex Academic Press is proud to announce a completely new and updated translation by Graham Rooth, MD, MRCPsych, of this seminal work. The Light of Zen in the West also includes a new translation of one of Benoit's other major texts, The Realization of the Self. The volume also contains two lesser known works - Buddha and the Intuition of the Universal and Techniques of Timeless Realization - and has a glossary and index. Benoit's writings on the human predicament were influenced by his studies in Zen Buddhism and psychoanalysis. Both books foreshadow contemporary transpersonal and integral psychology: through the re-integration of psychology and metaphysics, Benoit invites us to make our own journey toward spiritual transformation and the intuitive understanding of universal truths.
