John Cage: Zen Ox-Herding Pictures

Uniting fifty never-before-seen watercolor images, this book explores the powerful influence of Zen on the renowned artist and composer’s work. This book brings together fifty never-before-seen watercolor images from the brush of renowned artist and composer John Cage. These pieces were initially considered a by-product of a 1988 Mountain Lake Workshop, test sheets used to experiment with the flow of color from Cage’s brush as he prepared for larger Zen pieces, but authors Stephen Addiss and Ray Kass unite them here to explore the influence of Zen in Cage’s life. They juxtapose the compositions with the Ten Ox-Herding Pictures, a series of images used to communicate the essence of Zen for nearly one thousand years. They refer fragments of Cage’s poetry and his many statements about Zen practice, providing a fascinating lens through which the reader can view the Mountain Lake Workshop paintings. Cage’s images seem to become mysterious echoes of the centuries-old Ten Ox-Herding Pictures themselves, images about searching for the path to enlightenment. 50 color, 12 black-and-white illustrations

Thoughts on Spirit: Going Bush and Walkabout (But Not in Australia), The Trance State as a Religious Experience, Have You Tamed Your Ox Lately?

Thoughts on Spirit: Going Bush and Walkabout (But Not in Australia), The Trance State as a Religious Experience, Have You Tamed Your Ox Lately?

How deep do the mystical waters run within you? For some, it's much deeper than others. In Going Bush and Walkabout (But Not in Australia), I discuss what pertained to my own experiences of going bush and walkabout - without leaving the United States. In The Trance State as a Religious Experience, I point out that trances are not necessarily signs of mental illness. I also point out that trance states were a part of the religious experience in early Christianity. Finally, in Have You Tamed Your Ox Lately?, I take the Zen Buddhist Ox-Herding pictures and provide questions and commentary that are intended to make them more accessible to readers in North America and Europe, for instance. William L. Smith, M.S., etc.

Ox Herding: A Secular Pilgrimage

Ox Herding: A Secular Pilgrimage

Jae has many questions about the meaning of life and the purpose of her existence, but frustratingly, no answers. After the death of her agnostic grandmother, with whom she had her most fruitful philosophical discussions, she embarks on a personal journey to fulfil a mysterious note left to her in the will: ‘Seek and ye shall find.’The plot follows Jae as one spring day she walks over a bridge into a strange world on the other side of the river. There she encounters challenging situations and unusual people offering tempting theories about the meaning of life. From then on she devotes all her energy to finding her way back home by pursuing answers to the philosophical questions that drive her, experiencing a series of extraordinary adventures, until eventually she arrives at a completely unexpected conclusion.‘Ox-herding’ is a term used to describe the search for meaning, purpose and spirituality that does not result in the finding of God, or of any other external authority. The ox represents the elemental beast within us all: ego. ‘Herding’ our ego is the struggle to recognise, battle with, control, subdue, and finally, transcend the ego. Based on the successive phases of understanding as presented in the Chinese philosophical classic, ‘The Ten Ox Herding Pictures,...
