“Simply the best introduction to Dōgen’s Zen.”—Barry Magid, author of Ordinary Mind

Mon, 01/21/2013 - 12:35 -- wisdom

The writings of Zen master Dōgen are among the highest achievements not only of Japanese literature but of world literature. Dōgen’s writings are a near-perfect expression of truth, beautifully expressing the best of which the human race is capable. In this volume, Francis Cook presents ten selections from Dōgen’s masterwork, the Shobogenzo, as well as six of his own essays brilliantly illuminating the mind of this peerless master.
