THE SOUND OF THE ONE HAND: 281 Zen Koans with Answers, written by Hau Hoo and translated to English by Yoel Hoffman, is a Japanese classic that offers an opportunity to experience the profound interaction between a Zen master and his student. THE SOUND OF THE ONE HAND reveals answers to Zen koans – paradoxical questions posed to the initiate as a meditation discipline. “What is the sound of the one hand?” is the first and most famous Koan. In the answer, as well as in the two hundred eighty that follow, we are led into the innermost, heretofore secret, exchanges of Zen learning.
