This simple yet profound translation of Jakushitsu's poetry offers readers a wide selection of this 15th-century Rinzai Zen master's verse. Though the subject matter varies from commentaries on key Buddhist scriptures to reflections on the natural world and the commemoration of meaningful events, each poem reveals his power as a teacher and the depths of his understanding of Zen.
