The following issues are addressed in The Laughing Buddha of Tofukuji:

—In this book a living Zen master reveals personal details of his life and his journey towards becoming a Buddhist monk and Zen master. While most biographies celebrate the lives of past Zen masters, in this book the reader meets a living Zen master, and is introduced to his teachings, accomplishments, and humor.

—What are the principles behind authentic, “pristine” Zen, and what is life like for those who follow this path?

—What is “Zen Mind” and how does it differ from our day-to-day awareness of the world?
What does the Zen master mean by “every day is a fine day”? How can Zen help us to better appreciate our lives?

"The Laughing Buddha of Tofukuj: The Life of Zen Master Keido Fukushima, introduces us to one of the most influential Zen Buddhist teachers of our time. Through this book we encounter a spiritual master and consummate calligrapher whose infectious joy and humor has inspired the devotion of his biographer, Prof. Ishwar Harris, and students. Keido Fukushima Roshi transmits the spirit and teaching of Zen through humor, as well as deep spiritual insight. This volume will contribute to the encounter of Zen Buddhism and Western culture in a positive and illuminating way."
Alfred Bloom, Buddhist minister, scholar, and author
"This book is a very legible, un-idealized, honest and reliably experiential account of traditional Zen training."
Frederick Franck, artist and humanitarian, and author of The Buddha Eye
