Product Description

Review

"Daido Roshi challenges today's Zen students with quotes from sages who lived a thousand or so years ago. The deep, unrehearsed life questions that these words evoke in the students are answered with often practical, funny, or mind-shattering responses. Yet Daido Roshi offers those who come forward nothing to hang on to. This book is important for students and novice teachers alike. It is testimony to the vital relevance of alive Zen practice in our time."—Roshi Bernie Glassman, author of "Bearing Witness" and "Instructions to the Cook"
"In this unique book we get a rare glimpse of the face-to-face, intimate encounter of earnestly questioning student and accomplished Zen master. Each exchange has the potential to bring insight, even to the reader."—Jan Chozen Bays, author of "Jizo Bodhisattva "

""Cave of Tigers" brings the age-old practice of Dharna combat into a modern context. Daido Roshi's grasp of the historical material and his long experience of teaching through these Zen encounters with students make this a valauble presentation of an otherwise neglected subject. I recommend it to anyone wishing to learn about this traditional and still very vital practice."--Dennis Genpo Merzel, Roshi, author of "Big Mind--Big Heart: Finding Your Way"

About the Author

John Daido Loori (1931-2009) was one of the West's leading Zen masters. He was the founder and spiritual leader of the Mountains and Rivers Order and abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery. His work has been most noted for its unique adaptation of traditional Asian Buddhism into an American context, particularly with regard to the arts, the environment, social action, and the use of modern media as a vehicle of spiritual training and social change. Loori was an award-winning photographer and videographer. His art and wildlife photography formed the core of a unique teaching program that integrated art and wilderness training by cultivating a deep appreciation of the relationship of Zen to our natural environment. He was a dharma heir of the influential Japanese Zen master Taizan Maezumi Roshi and he authored many books.

Format: Paperback
I like this book a lot. Although I have only once taken part in a Zen dharma encounter, the words between teacher (Daido Loori) and various students here bring the practice of Zen to life. Intellectual thinking doesn't cut it in Zen and students are left to stand in their own experience. In meditation, we may think we have found answers, but this kind of testing by an experienced teacher really forces students to demonstrate their insight. In each recorded encounter I was left thinking about what my own answer would have been and that led to meaningful self enquiry. I imagine I will come back to this text often for both specific subject matter and for the often humorous exchanges which show what both student and teacher bring to Zen practice.
May your life go well.
