Zen master Hongzhi, considered by Dogen to be a Buddha, brilliantly articulates silent illumination, also known as shikantaza, just sitting, or objectless meditation.

This is a lithe translation of the core of Ch`an master Hongzhi`s Extensive Record. It includes an informative introduction tracing Hongzhi`s life, explaining important facets of his teaching, and fixing his place in the Soto tradition and the Zen tradition as a whole. Featured in this volume are 23 religious verses addressing the foundational teaching poems of Soto Zen. Both spiritual literature and meditation instruction, Cultivating the Empty Field is sure to inspire and delight.

"Hongzhi Zenji is one of those few Chinese masters who have had a profound influence on the Japanese Soto Zen tradition. When we appreciate the effect of this medicine, we know that Master Hongzhi`s 834-year-old relics are still fresh and warm, and vitally universal." Taizan Maezumi Roshi.
