The Heart of Dogen's Shobogenzo
The Heart of Doμgen’s Shoμboμgenzoμ provides exhaustively annotated translations of the difficult core essays of Shoμboμgenzoμ, the masterwork of Japanese Zen master Doμgen Kigen, the founder of Soμtoμ Zen. This book is centered around those essays that generations have regarded as containing the essence of Doμgen’s teaching. These translations, revised from those that first appeared in the 1970s, clarify and enrich the understanding of Doμgen’s religious thought and his basic ideas about Zen practice and doctrine. Doμgen’s uncommon intellectual gifts, combined with a profound religious attainment and an extraordinary ability to articulate it, make Shoμboμgenzoμ unique even in the vast literature the Zen school has produced over the centuries, securing it a special place in the history of world religious literature.
