This account of the "walking" or "marathon" monks of Mount Hiei in Japan, who have been performing an extraordinary mountain pilgrimage for over 1000 years, describes their rituals of chanting, meditation and exercise, culminating in walks of over 1000 miles and nine days without food or sleep. The book also examines the history and teaching of these Tendai Zen monks and profiles some of their leaders. John Stevens has also written "Abundant Peace" and "Zen and the Art of Calligraphy".
