Publisher's Summary

Dogen (1200-1253 C.E.) founded the Soto school of Zen Buddhism in Japan. His teachings are the very embodiment of the paradoxical blend of mystery and clarity that characterizes Zen. Dogen's approach to meditation has become perhaps the most influential Eastern spiritual practice in the Western world. The selections in this program are from Moon in a Dewdrop, and were chosen by Gary Snyder.

Uneven but rewarding

If you enjoy the paradoxical yet profound teachings of Zen Buddhism, then you'll want to listen to this.

I found both the teachings and the narration a little slow (boring?) until about midway through, when Dogen's teachings became more intellectually interesting, paradoxical and humorous (although it's probably just me).

Definitely not for everybody, but maybe for you.

Not Review

Over 30 years ago, my very first introduction to anything buddhist was Dogen. I still have yet to barely scratch the surface. I have always liked the fact that, just when I thought I have understood something, reading further dismantles that.
