by Hee-Jin Kim Hee-Jin

Kim's "Eihei Dogen: Mystical Realist," originally published in 1975, was a landmark text in English-language Dogen studies. The book begins by surveying Dogen's early involvement with Buddhism, including some novelistic descriptions of his experiences in China. Followed by a thorough and elucidating examination of the doctrines Dogen began to expound after his return to Japan in 1227. The book concludes with a thoughtful reflection on his approach to monasticism toward the end of his life. Throughout, Kim allows Dogen to speak for himself: Countless quotations illustrate not only the finer points of Dogen's philosophy but also his startling rhetorical technique.
