The Laughing Buddha of Tofukuji is an intimate account of the life and teachings of the contemporary Zen Master Keido Fukushima. It features the Zen insights of a living Zen master, who is in the tradition of the great Zen scholar, Professor D.T. Suzuki and the late Zen Master Shibayama Roshi, in bringing authentic Zen to the West.




Readers interested in Buddhism and Zen will consider it a rare treat to find a new book that:

—Offers an intimate look into the life, mind, art, and spirit of a great living Zen master;
—Reveals the concepts and practices that guide followers of what D.T. Suzuki has called the “true Zen,” which is not the Westernized and adapted Zen of popular fads;
—Approaches Zen, often thought to be a complex and inscrutable system of ideas, through easily understandable stories, dialogues, and narratives; and
—Involves us in a compelling story of one man’s spiritual development, in which we can share in his abundant love, laughter, and boundless respect for life’s deepest meanings.
"…one of this Zen Master's best teachings is the slogan 'Watch, taste and bite.' In this metaphor, Zen is a slice of sweet pie and all that is necessary is to bite into it and enjoy. Not a bad way to read this paperback."
—Spirituality and Health
