Shobogenzo-- a complete English translation in 4 volumes,
By A Customer
This review is from: Master Dogen's Shobogenzo: Book 1 (Paperback)
This book is Volume One of a complete English translation of Zen Master Dogen's 95 essays which form the core teaching of the Soto school of Zen Buddhism. Volume One contains the first 22 essays. Master Dogen's clear logical approach is in direct contrast to the popular image of Zen literature. All four volumes contain excellent notes, Chinese characters for advanced students and a extensive glossary of Buddhist terminology in Sanskrit. A good bibliography is also included.
This is not a beginner's book but would suit intermediate and advanced students of Soto Zen.
