A major new translation. Shobogenzo is a monumental work, considered to be one of the most profound expressions of Zen and also the most outstanding literary and philosophical work of Japan. It is a collection of essays by Zen master Dogen (1200-1253), founder of Japan's Soto Zen school.

Kazuaki Tanahashi and a team of translators have produced this new translation that combines accuracy with a deep understanding of Dogen's voice and literary gifts. This finely produced, 2 volume boxed set includes a wealth of materials, and as a bonus, the most renowned of Dogen's essays, Recommending Zazen to All People.

"A vast, beautiful translation of the master work of the Japanese genius Dogen zenji. English-speaking practitioners will be indebted to Kaz Tanahashi and his associates for this truly magnificent teaching." Peter Matthiessen.

"At long last! A discerning, poetic, and intimate rendering of Dogen's true expression of the Dharma. Dogen's devotees have long awaited Tanahashi's complete translation of the Shobogenzo into a contemporary and deeply profound version." Pat Enkyo O'Hara.

"Tanahashi, a renowned translator of Dogen and noted artist, has put together an outstanding team of co-translators to create a complete rendering of Dogen's magnum opus, the Shobogenzo. This publication, which will be in great demand by all scholars, students, and practitioners of Zen Buddhism and Eastern thought more generally, is both accurate and accessible in following the original text literally while capturing the spirit of Dogen's poetic genius. Although there are numerous versions of the work available in English, this edition is sure to be the one turned to and cited consistently by knowledgeable readers." Steven Heine.

"Reading over the Treasury of the True Dharma Eye, I am astonished first by the incredible range and variety of Dogen's writings, and second by the immense task that has been done to translate this major text. With the possible exception of Hakuin's complete writings, there is nothing in Japanese Zen to equal the immense breadth and depth of Dogen's work, which ranges from direct instructions in simple language to the most complex and profound teachings that use words to go far beyond words. I am convinced that Zen students will find this text especially valuable to contemplate, study, and absorb over the entire course of their lifetimes." Stephen Addiss.
