Shobogenzo: the true Dharma-eye treasury vol 1
Shobogenzo: The True Dharma-eye Treasury is the masterwork of the thirteenth-century Zen master Eihei Dogen, founder of the Soto sect of Japanese Zen Buddhism. This reprint edition presents Volume I of the exemplary translation by Gudo Wafu Nishijima and Chodo Cross of the complete ninetyfive– chapter edition of the Shobogenzo, compiled by the Zen master Hangyo Kozen in the late seventeenth century. Volumes II, III, and IV will be published in succession in forthcoming volumes of the BDK English Tripi?aka Series. The Shobogenzo offers the most comprehensive presentation of Dogen’s thought on matters ranging from the practicalities of monastic life to the most profound insights into Buddhist practice and teachings.
