Dōgen’s Extensive Record (Paperback) - Praise

A Translation of the Eihei Kōroku

“This is a gem of a book that succeeds in conveying the warmth and compassion of one of Buddhism’s great towering figures.”—The Middle Way

“Leighton and Okumura have rendered Dōgen’s dense and idiosyncratic language in clear, lively, and engaging English. This is no small accomplishment. All readers will benefit greatly from this outstanding contribution to the study of Dōgen and Zen Buddhism.”—Philosophy East & West

“This massive work will be a valuable asset not just for students of the Zen teacher Dōgen (1200-1253), but for all students of Zen and Buddhism in general.”—William M. Bodiford, in Buddhadharma

“This new and hefty volume represents the [previously unseen] other half of Dōgen’s teaching. We owe a great debt to Taigen Dan Leighton and Shohaku Okumura for this monumental translation, a labor of love and a generous offering to those who choose to wander beyond the beaten path.”—Inquiring Mind
