3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wise, clear, and searching, Opening the Hand of Thought brings together the writings of an iconoclastic Japanese Zen master. Kōshō Uchiyama takes a more rational approach to transcendence, to the discovery of the unlimited depth of reality, and understands the self beyond our usual notions of who we are--the self that wholeheartedly lives out the truth of life. He attempts to answer the essential question: How do we bring Zen practice and our everyday modern lives together into a fresh original expression of our life force? His book is a challenge to the individual, an exploration of the relationship each of us has to ourself and to the world, and a spiritual journey infused with the wise humor of a respected and revered teacher."--Publisher's description
