The Girl of Zen by Susana Franco is a most enjoyable read about a woman, Victoria, who visited a monastery in Japan. She endeavored to find herself or find a spiritual path, and planned to visit India later to learn to teach yoga as well. But the austerities  of the monastery were repellent to her. Dropping a few grains of rice on the floor by mistake, she was horrified when she was told to pick them up and eat them. Nothing could be wasted. In that same first meal, she was reprimanded more than once for infractions she could not have been aware of. But she stayed. The one other woman resident, Ronda, showed her duties day by day and Victoria became accustomed. The occasional trip to town for a communal hot bath, or to eat delicious restaurant food, did not satisfy as expected. At last Victoria grew to prefer the Zen way. But, ever the seeker, she used her knowledge of astrology to analyze others with some interesting findings by them as well as herself.

I am intrigued by spiritual seeking and so found this lighthearted book enjoyable. Franco brings a touch of humor to this seeker’s memoir, The Girl of Zen. More than just a series of rituals, life at the monastery involved learning disciplines, casual chatting with fellow seekers, supporting each other and working as a team. It would not be for everyone, but for those who seek meaning in their life, it may be one avenue to bring clarity.”
