A Tale for the Time Being

Missed the discussion/have more to say about A Tale for the Time Being? Discuss it here in the comments. Here’s a question to start off:

Haruki #1 cites a Zen master for the idea that “a single moment is all we need to establish our human will and attain truth” (324). What kind of enlightenment is Ozeki calling for in A Tale for the Time Being? Is it really available to everyone? Would you try to achieve it if you could? Why or why not?

I have put on hold copies for everyone who attended the last meeting (and asked for the book) but if you weren’t there and would like a copy, please email me at emma@topshamlibrary.org. There has been increased demand for the book due to the film coming out, so I will watch the holds to try and make sure everyone has a copy.
