This volume contains teachings predominantly from the Japanese Zen tradition, including the writings of Dogen, the founder and most venerated master of Japanese Zen. Also included is a translation of the Carya-Gita, a collection of the teachings of famous tantric masters who lived during the illustrious Pala dynasty of old Bengal--a text with striking parallels to the early Zen tradition.
