The first full-length study of Daito’s life & literary legacy in English. The book includes an engaging description of the political, cultural, & social milieu in which Daito lived & worked & is the first English study to provide a detailed discussion of Zen ‘capping phrases’. Prof. Kenneth Kraft provides a sensitive & perspicacious analysis of a sampling of Daito’s writings along with a valuable introduction to Zen capping phrases. Kraft’s analysis of Daito’s religious training & life as a Zen master provides insight into contemporary problems of enlightenment & awakening in Zen thought & the issue of authenticity in Zen teachings. An invaluable contribution to the study of early Japanese Rinzai Buddhism.
