Reviews

This collection . . . is an occasion for celebration by American Buddhists. . . . those concerned with the living meaning embedded in these writings can only feel gratitude for the riches Cleary has provided. -- Tricycle <br> Thomas Cleary's strong rendering of important sections of Dogen Zenji's essential writings, with his excellent and comprehensive notes, opens the gate to a far wider understanding and appreciation of the extraordinary work of the founder of Japanese Zen. --Peter Matthiessen, author of Nine-Headed Dragon River <br> My reverence for both Dogen and Cleary is virtually unbounded. . . . It is becoming hard, in fact, to read anyone's translations but Cleary's. --Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall <br> A vivid and fresh new translation. . . . Cleary preserves Dogen's form and . . . succeeds in creating an atmosphere that awakens the essence of Dogen Zenji's teachings for American Zen students. --Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi, Roshi
