Paul details the qualities of a dynamic leader, warning that pastors, elders, and deacons hold a tremendous responsibility in guiding their flocks in the true gospel. In the book of Titus, he instructs one of his young proteges on how to select church leaders. We cannot be sufficiently grateful to the author, first for the fact of his having brought Zen closer to Western understanding, and secondly for the manner in which he has achieved this task. Additionally, American philosopher William Barrett compiled many of Suzuki's articles and essays concerning Zen into a volume entitled Zen Buddhism. In addition to his popularly oriented works, Suzuki wrote a translation of the Lankavatara Sutra and a commentary on its Sanskrit terminology.

It is art, especially visual art, that gives us a glimpse of Mahayana. The book explains the importance of "beginner's mind," starting off with the line: "In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few.

Crete was notorious in ancient times for immoralityquarreling, and laziness.

Suzuki maintained connections in the West and, for instance, delivered a paper at the World Congress of Faiths inat the University of London he was an exchange professor during this year. Basic practices include sila ethicssamadhi meditation, dhyana and prajna wisdomas described in the Noble Eightfold Path. Are there any books that we missed? While it is a very cruel policy, when looked at from the point of view of the current and future happiness of the entire German people, it may be that, for a time, some sort of extreme action is necessary in order to preserve the nation.

In addition to his popularly oriented works, Suzuki wrote a translation of the Lankavatara Sutra and a commentary on its Sanskrit terminology.

Mahayana holds that all persons should seek to follow the path of the bodhisattva; Theravada teaches that such efforts are admirable but not obligatory.

Suzuki was especially interested in the formative centuries of this Buddhist tradition, in China. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope-the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christwho gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
