Praise

"Tanahashi is a writer and painter whose earlier collection, Moon in a Dewdrop served as an introduction to the work of Dogen for many Western readers. This sequel collection draws from the complete range of Dogen’s writing. Some pieces have been widely translated and will be familiar to students of Zen, others have been reprinted from Moon in a Dewdrop, and still others appear here in English for the first time. Tanahashi worked with a number of co-translators, all of them Zen practitioners in Dogen’s lineage, and the result is an accessible and admirably consistent text. This is particularly impressive given the somewhat eccentric nature of Dogen’s prose, which can approach poetry and as a vehicle for Zen teachings often exists at the outer limits of usefulness of language in conveying meaning. Students of Zen will find this text essential."—Mark Woodhouse, Library Journal.
