Vietnamese transcription and English translation of notes by the Vietnamese taoist painter, Nguyen Gia Tri. These notes are kept by Nguyen Xuan.

"...Through this book that transcibes words and sentences that seem to have neither head nor tail, quite similar to the ones in the analects, or to be more precise, that resemble words of a Zen master, we can see that painter Nguyen Gia Tri isn't simply a wellknown painter, but he is also a Taoist priest, or we can say without being cantankerous, that he's a genuine Zen master.

Painting for him is only a means to teach the true Path..." -- Taken from book flap
