by Hongzhi, translated by Taigen Daniel Leighton
Hongzhi, the twelfth century Chinese Zen master, is celebrated as one of Zen's most brilliant poets of the Dharma. In this collection, Hongzhi evokes the true spirit of "silent illumination" or shikantaza, just sitting. In expansive and rhapsodic language, Hongzhi celebrates and instructs about stillness. Includes a biographical and historical introduction.
