Edited by Kazuaki Tanahashi and translated by a selection of well-known Zen teachers, including Robert Aitken and Philip Whalen.
Moon in a Dewdrop contains the key essays of the great master Dogen, as well as extensive background materials that will help Western readers to approach this significant work. There is also a selection of Dogen's poetry, most of which has not appeared in English translation before. Dogen's thought runs counter to conventional logic, employing paradoxical language and startling imagery. It illuminates such fundamental concerns as the nature of time, existence, life, death, the self, and what is beyond self.
