My meditation-imparted experiences and the Dharma transmission from Genro qualified me to be named a teacher of Zen.

Find the Seeker! (The Pathless Path to Fulfillment and Happiness) by Xuan Lou Genro and Clifford Stevens is a non-fiction inspirational book on finding true happiness and fulfillment. This is a book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of adults and young adults who wish to find their true nature and gain true understanding of their spiritual needs. This book guides the reader in learning about the spiritual dimensions that all people share in order to provide guidance on existential questions, the true nature of one’s self, and the ways in which to live a fulfilling life.

Find the Seeker! (The Pathless Path to Fulfillment and Happiness) by Xuan Lou Genro and Clifford Stevens is a well-written book that is truly unique. I enjoyed the way that the book was not just inspirational, but also informative in that it taught me about not just myself, but also about Eastern religion and Zen. I found myself truly enjoying this book because it felt as if the authors were trying not just to teach me, but also to help me to improve myself as a person, both in mind and spirit. The fact that the book is written in plain English that avoided jargon greatly appealed to me because I did not have to be an expert or constantly using a dictionary to understand what was written. Instead, I was able to understand the concepts from the very beginning of the book. Overall, I am glad that I took the time to read this book as it has really changed the way that I view myself, and it has taught me what I need to work on to achieve a more fulfilling life!
