Zen for Americans. Sermons of a Buddhist abbot by Soyen Shaku. Translated by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki. Narrated by Denis Daly. 

In a world riddled with irreconcilable conflict among doctrinaire religions, Soyen Shaku's crisp and incisive commentaries on Buddhism come across as particularly engaging. Shaku's eminently reasonable worldview and his skillful exposition of a truly universal definition of divinity and its inevitable necessity are both compelling and difficult to refute. In particular, this collection of discourses probes deeply and revealingly into the fundamental questions that occupy the minds of believers and unbelievers alike: why men cultivate religion in the first place and what the secret of its persistent vitality is.
