Zen Classics for the Modern World
This book, aimed at the modern reader, discusses three classic Chinese Zen texts from three different traditions and eras: The delightful poetic masterpiece Enjoying the Way from the 8th century Northern Zen tradition. The profound poems -- and stunning illustrations -- of Ten Oxherding Pictures from the 12th century Rinzai tradition. The hard-hitting Exhortations for Those Who Donít Arouse the Doubt from the early 17th century Soto tradition. Much of this material has never been translated into English before, with authoritative, contemporary commentary revealing the depth and diversity of Zen Buddhism as a living tradition. Here is the true face of Zen practice as it strips away facile generalizations and false assumptions, leading the reader to a genuine encounter with the heart of the matter. Author Jeff Shore, who brings these texts to life, is a Rinzai Zen master and professor of Zen in the Modern World at Hanazono University in Kyoto, Japan. Illus.
