The crazy clouds of this book are those innovative, nonconformist Zen masters – wandering seekers and sages often disguised as beggars, nomadic preachers, and madmen – whose singular Zen Way has profoundly influenced Zen Buddhism.  Spanning a period from 18th century China to 20th century America, Crazy clouds portrays the lives and teachings of Páng, the renegade Ykkyu and the lay monk Nyogen Senzaki.
