Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Two of Dogen's most esteemed translators provide key chapters from his Zen masterpiece, the Shobogenzo, in English with annotations to guide the reader.

The Heart of Dogen's Shobogenzo provides exhaustively annotated translations of the difficult core essays of Shobogenzo, the masterwork of Japanese Zen master Dogen Kigen, the founder of Soto Zen. This book is centered around those essays that generations have regarded as containing the essence of Dogen's teaching. These translations, revised from those that first appeared in the 1970s, clarify and enrich the understanding of Dogen's religious thought and his basic ideas about Zen practice and doctrine. Dogen's uncommon intellectual gifts, combined with a profound religious attainment and an extraordinary ability to articulate it, make Shobogenzo 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.

“These translations, originally published in The Eastern Buddhist journal more than twenty years ago, are the most accurate and complete renderings available. Many people have been eagerly waiting for years for these pieces to appear in a single, handy book.” — Steven Heine, editor of A Study of Dogen: His Philosophy and Religion
