Dogen's Extensive Record : A Translation Of The Eihei Koroku

Dogen's Extensive Record : A Translation Of The Eihei Koroku

$52.00 $65.00
Eihei Dogen is known for two major works. The first work, the massive Shobogenzo (Treasury of the True Dharma Eye), represents his earlier teachings and exists in numerous English translations; the second work, the Eihei Koroku, is a collection including almost all his later teachings, such as short formal discourses to the monks training at his temple, longer informal talks, and koans with his commentaries, as well as short appreciatory verses on various topics. The Shobogenzo has received enormous attention in Western Zen and Western Zen literature, and with the publication of this watershed volume, the Eihei Koroku will surely rise to commensurate stature.
Dogen's Extensive Record is the first complete and scholarly translation of this monumental work into English. This edition contains extensive and detailed research and annotation by Taigen Dan Leighton and Shohaku Okumura, as well as forewords by the eighteenth-century poet-monk Ryokan and Tenshin Reb Anderson, Senior Dharma Teacher of the San Francisco Zen Center - plus introductory essays from Dogen scholar Steven Heine, and the prominent American Zen master John Daido Loori.
