Praise

"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

"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



"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



"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
