    • ZEN supports your own targets (Bonpu Zen), the development of your personality (Gedo Zen), and your spirituality (Daijo Zen). This book focuses on Bonpu Zen, maybe also bit on Gedo Zen - although it doesn't talk about Zen. It only wants to teach meditation. The '10-for-me' meditation is its kernel: counting 10 breaths, again and again - embedded into a set of meditation phases which could be taken as a workout plan. Additionally it gives some valuable advices. The tip for example, to take the own thoughts as rolling by traffic, or as stones, which waves a calming down lake. And of course the advice only to gingerly guide the wilde horse of our thoughts to the resting spot.
