by Hakuun Yasutani
Dogen's short teaching, Shobogenzo Genjokoan, written for a lay practitioner and the fascicle that opens the collection of his teachings, the Shobogenzo, or Treasury of the True Dharma Eye, is a powerful but subtle teaching on practice and enlightenment. It's wholly appropriate, then, that this translation of the commentary by Yasutani Roshi, a major figure in bringing Zen to the West, was one of the first available to English speaking audiences. Yasutani Roshi elucidates Dogen's teaching on the nature of practice, enlightenment, and the buddhaway in his characteristically sharp but grounded style.
