Insightful commentary on a beloved ancient philosopher of Zen by a beloved contemporary master of Zen.
Famously insightful and famously complex, Eihei Dogen's writings have been studied and puzzled over for hundreds of years. InDeepest Practice, Deepest Wisdom,Kosho Uchiyama, beloved twentieth-century Zen teacher addresses himself head-on to unpacking Dogen's wisdom from three fascicles (or chapters) of his monumentalShobogenzofor a modern audience.
The fascicles presented here fromShobogenzo, orTreasury of the True Dharma Eyeinclude "Shoaku Makusa" or "Refraining from Evil," "Maka Hannya Haramitsu" or "Practicing Deepest Wisdom," and "Uji" or "Living Time." Tom Wright and Shohaku Okumura lovingly translate Dogen's penetrating words and Uchiyama's thoughtful commentary on each piece. At turns poetic and funny, always insightful, this is Zen wisdom for the ages.
