The Way of Clear Eyes
The art of manifesting without noise

Preface by Rev. Guglielmo Doryu Cappelli

Afterword by Filippo La Porta

It is customary in Japan to pour a ladle of water for good luck on the doorsteps of houses, shops, temples and thus chase away bad influences. A gesture, a ritual that suggests the opportunity to create a better world.

He speaks to us about this elementary, disarmed truth, accessible to all Annamaria Gyoetsu Epifanìa and every wisdom tradition.

Becoming aware of this can give us the strength to experience in faith an inexpressible dimension of benefit useful to all beings.

The Way of Clear Eyes shows, together with all the great masters summoned, what is truly “real”: beyond the illusions, projections, fantasies only the relationship remains, the change, the sharing.

The Way of Clear Eyes It consists of seven chapters, “seven petals” of a wild white anemone, symbol of grace and strength. «Seven petals» that mark a path of Enlightenment.

Each is divided into five steps with evocative titles, thanks to which the reader is accompanied and welcomed on the path that leads to the discovery of Zen Buddhism.

«In a happy combination of prose and poetry, memories, aphorisms, short dialogues, traditional apologists and poems, the rhythm of the writing is linked to the secret rhythm of things: the pauses, the spaces between the words to mimic the silence, the sentences or the verses that last as long as a human breath, like the phrases of a jazz saxophonist.

This creates a mosaic that is closer to poetry than literature because it arouses emotions even before transmitting ideas.»
