Publisher's Summary

Eihei Dogen (1200 - 1253), founder of the Soto School of Zen Buddhism, is one of the greatest religious, philosophical, and literary geniuses of Japan. His writings have been studied by Zen students for centuries, particularly his masterwork, Shobo Genzo or Treasury of the True Dharma Eye. This is the first book to offer the great master's incisive wisdom in short selections taken from the whole range of his voluminous works. The pithy and powerful readings, arranged according to theme, provide a perfect introduction to Dogen - and inspire spiritual practice in people of all traditions.

A great performance of great wisdom.

This was my first exposure to Dogen, and a highly recommend it to anyone on the path, or for anyone who has "attained". The guy has experienced the void of nothingness that creates the everythingness of the universe, and it speaks volumes.

Great work on Dogen

Great narrator. Well structured even for a beginner. I would highly recommend this listen for those on the way. master Dogen paints a verbal work of art to help you to focus your mind. Not 1, not 2.

Hard book to understand

The book is hard to follow. Sometimes was hard to understand the meaning of the narration.

crystals have blossoms just like human trees

I achieved enlightenment; I don't understand and I don't want to understand. Does anyone understand or is there blind acceptance?

........... and there are myriads of myriads

A great intro to Dogen

A treatment of Dogen's Zen that's straight forward, well researched and readily accessible to Westerners.
