The Book of Awakening is a beautiful piece that introduces the reader to the author’s gentle and kind perspective of spirituality in simple daily encounters. Its beauty is that by reading each entries, represented by different days calendar based, he brought us to enter a secret place where we can escape from our daily routines simply to ponder about truth and life.

Though he doesn’t make 1 entry per day continuously, he made it enough for the readers to anticipate a new ‘koan’ for them to embrace the new day.

Besides making this book, he was also a famous author that created (copied from Wikipedia):
