    1. ۱.اویگن هریگل، استاد دانشگاه فلسفه، یک آلمانی با تمام معانی ای که این دو کلمه، فلسفه و آلمانی، در کنار هم می توانند داشته باشند، به دعوت دانشگاهی ژاپنی سر از توکیو در می آورد، و به خاطر آوازه ای که از ذن شنیده و علاقه ای که از قدیم به عرفان و اشراق داشته، در به در دنبال جایی می گر [...]

    2. Are we all such helpless and inexperienced beginners with not the slightest clue on how to correct our aims or on how to draw our bowstrings right? This supposedly uplifting book has depressed me amidst its poetry and beauty into a realization that I will probably never 'correct my own stance' or 'let the arrow fall at the moment of highest tension', effortlessly hit any goal or even realize what the real goal isWhy is there no art in life anymore? Isn't it all that should exist? Can we please b [...]

    3. In the 1920s Eugene Herrigel, a university professor of philosophy, took up archery in Japan as a way to get closer to an understanding of Zen. Zen in the Art of Archery, published in 1948, is his entertaining account of the process of learning archery.The relationship between archery and Zen that Herrigel presents can be criticised on at least three grounds: his archery teachers relationship to Zen, the problem of translation - Herrigel's Japanese was very limited, his translator struggled with [...]

    4. A painless book to read. I'm just not into the Zen thing. Reading this book made me realize that I never will be this type of person, I couldn't go through with the ssssssslllllllooooooooowwwwwwwww process of learning each step of something to perfection. I'm sure I'd be a better person if I could just be in this way, but I never will, just like I will never be an Astronaut or a Fireman, and that's okey dokey because the world needs anxiously high-strung neurotic people just as much as they need [...]

    5. Many persons had recommended this little book over the years of high school and college, it being one of the canon of the counterculture like the novels of Kurt Vonnegut, the meditations of Alan Watts or the more scholarly essays of D.T. Suzuki. I resisted, partly because it was so popular, another herd-phenomenon, and partly because it was about archery of all things. But, seeing the thing and how short it was, I finally sat down and read the thing.I'd read quite a bit about Zen Buddhism by thi [...]

    6. I was surprised that I enjoyed this book fairly well. My dad -- who believes that I am an incorrigible materialist, simply because he has wacky pseudo-scientific ideas about quantum mechanics that I am constantly forced to rebut -- sneaked this into my bag when I left after Christmas vacation. But I was having trouble finding something to read last night and I picked it up and was done before I knew it. It's really not as much la-la and hand-waving as I anticipated. I did cringe every time Herri [...]

    7. Ever since my early college days the abstraction apparatus known as western culture seemed to me a useful but essentially flawed way of understanding our place in the world. Zen, when I first met it, seemed to validate Rimbaud´s "derrangement of the senses" and Blake's "path of excess" procedures. It gave a method, albeit a strange, incomprehensible one, to mysticism propounded by western artists. It would seem from Herrigel's book, that there is no one path to Zen and the absolute: archery wil [...]

    8. I can't say I liked this one very much. I know it did have certain power when it was originally published. For example it may be worth pointing out how influential the title has been. Do you see any resemblance with the titles of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values and Zen in the Art of Writing? It was one of the earlier books to introduce zen to the west. It is autobiographical in nature. The German professor Eugen Herrigel was interested in the occult, (as I think [...]

    9. A short and simple book about how Zen masters practice archery, and a memoir of the author's archery training in Japan. Become one with the bow, let the arrow shoot itself, that sort of thing. It's interesting to read a book about Zen when it was still very new in the West. It reminded me of An Experiment in Mindfulness. This may sound cheesy, but it also reminded me of the jedi in Star Wars. Probably the most intriguing part in this book is when the archery teacher shoots a perfect bulls-eye in [...]

    10. I read this book either immediately before or immediately after Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I liked this book very much. The concept of relaxed attention was interesting to me. I remember that for the whole semester after reading this, I would hold books and papers and bags with the minimal amount of force needed to keep them from falling out of my hands, just like the archer should hold the bowstring with the minimal amount of force, waiting for the moment of effortless release.

    11. This book is what The Inner Game of Tennis would have been if it were much shorter, less repetitive, more interesting, harder to read, and told through the vehicle of one person's path to mastery of their craft. With regards to that book, this one is superior in pretty much every way, almost the point where I am embarrassed to have read Inner Game first.I picked up this book on recommendation from a friend, and I was interested in how I would think of it since as a general rule I love works abou [...]

    12. Твоето съзнание е заето от въпроса: „Как да победя?“Днешният свят се занимава само с техниката.Когато ти си в определено състояние, освободен от всякакво съзнание, когато ти действуваш, без намерение, в съгласие с голямата Природа, само тогава ти си върху Верния път. Така ч [...]

    13. I've read books like this before, most of them for a class I think. Most never range more than 100 pages but they never fail to send my brain round in circles trying to really comprehend what I just read. Some bits are more clear than others, I will say, but there are plenty of passages I end up reading more than once. I won't even attempt to give a description of what Zen is. Like Zen itself, my understanding of it is both there and not there, I can't verbalize it or write it but it exists to m [...]

    14. SUM: Eugen Herrigel recounts his interesting experience training under a zen archery master in Japan. As a western man, Herrigel encounters problems with the process of archery, and his journey toward zen is framed in a perspective that a western audience can appreciate and understandV: I absolutely love this book. I draw connections, of course, with my own pursuit of writing as an art-form. For anyone remotely creatively-inclined, this book is a must-read. Some of the things that Herrigel quote [...]

    15. Even though this short study of zen--[scratch that]--Even though this short study of archery--[scratch that too because it becomes difficult to name--]Even though this short study of the relationship between thought and action, between subject and object, between exertion and idleness, between inhaling and exhaling focuses almost entirely upon archery as a metaphor of zen Buddhism, it can still be read as a testament to faith, knowledge, sanity, perception, effort, achievement, peace, discipline [...]

    16. Whenever I take on a new task or start studying something new, I find that this is my "go to" book. More than Zen, it is a book about how being slow and disciplined allows one to master technique. It was assigned to me first as a textbook for art class. The idea is not to just pick up paints/charcoal/pencil and draw, but to become the the art so that it grows out of one's Unconscious. You dont have to be a student of kyudo to get this book. It's applications as many as there are things in one's [...]

    17. I liked this, but wanted to like it more. It might be partly the translation, by R.C.F. Hull, but I suspect that it is the essential German-ness of the writing: heavy and a bit plodding, a disease that affects most of the translated German writers I've read, even Hesse. (Or maybe even _especially_ Hesse?)Anyway, it's either a memoir with embedded Zen musings, or a Zen tract with embedded autobiographical musings. Six of one; I suspect that the need to pick one over the other would be un-Zennish. [...]

    18. Maybe it would have helped if I had at least once picked up a genuine bow and arrow (I'm sure I had play ones as a kid you know, with the suction cups as "points"). Or maybe if I read a little more patiently about breathing, "not being," "not shooting," and all that Zen stuff. It just occurred to me, as I read, that I need a master, too. Reading about Zen doesn't translate so well. I need to breathe. Mindful inhale. Mindful exhale. And not fear death. (I'll get to that someday, after I die, but [...]

    19. Manualetto semplice che cerca di spiegare come l'autore è arrivato allo Zen tramite l'arte del tiro con l'arco. Il libro ha il pregio di essere molto breve, semplice e non annoiare. Risulta comunque (come l'autore precisa fin dall'inizio) molto difficile spiegare lo stato Zen in cui si arriva. L'autore in questo manualetto ci prova e in parte secondo me ci riesce.

    20. La prima lettura è arrivata nel momento sbagliato e l'ho trovato insignificante. Ho sempre ritenuto che il mio carattere ed il mio approccio alla vita fossero agli antipodi rispetto alla filosofia zen.Oggi la mia posizione è molto meno netta e diverse letture mi hanno permesso di allargare le mie vedute. A breve credo proprio che lo rileggerò.

    21. Books with Master and Pupil theme always work for me. I can hear all the variations of this myth and enjoy them. Again and again. Yet, this book didn't work for me. I failed to see a genuine learning in the voice of the author. It was almost caricaturish. Lately I have also become very sensitive to cultural appropriation, and I no longer enjoy reading books on Yog that are written by someone who can't read Sanskrit, or a book on Zen by someone who doesn't understand Japanese language. Essence or [...]

    22. Zen in the Art of Archery is my first introduction to Zen. Accounts of Herrigel definitely leaves you thinking as to what it means to truly be egoless - focusing on the art or the task at hand, without worrying about the target.

    24. I picked up this book the last day of my trip to California. I have a strong interest in Zen and its implications. The story revolves around a german professors attempt to understand zen through the art of archery. The best zen archer is the one who can send an arrow without noticing that the arrow has been sent. It is explained in the following way: "If one really wishes to be a master of an art, technical knowledge of it is not enough. One has to transcend technique so that the art becomes an [...]

    25. About halfway through Zen in the Art of Archery, I became confused. Herrigel's conception of Zen as a practice where one loses oneself and gains mastery of a specific art through surrender seemed at odds with the other Zen works I had studied, most of which emphasized mindfulness as opposed to the habituation that Herrigel endorsed. I did some addition investigation (which in the 2013 means consulting ) and found a fine article by Yamada Shoji that contextualized Herrigel's experience in writing [...]

    26. This is a fascinating book and a quick read, so I can recommend it without hesitation. Some parts might be slightly difficult language because of the translation (from German I believe) but push past it, it's mostly very clearly and succinctly written.The book follows the author's introduction to Zen, through the practice of the art of archery, but most importantly it presents Zen in a transition from Western to Eastern thinking. Initially the author does a great job of framing the Western point [...]
