For an introduction to the practice of Zen, see:

- Opening the Hand of Thought, by Kosho Uchiyama. Written by a disciple of Kodo Sawaki, this book contains an excellent description of shikantaza Zen practice.
- Buddha Takes No Prisoners, by Patrick Ophuls. Although written by a practitioner of Insight Meditation, this is an excellent introduction to practice. See Tony's review here.
- The Zen Teaching of Homeless Kodo, edited with commentary by Kosho Uchiyama. Unfortunately, this little gem is out of print, but several of the chapters are available here.
