Product Overview

"Dogen's masterpiece is beautifully translated and clarified in an equally masterful way. An obvious labor of love based on many years of careful study, reflection, and practice that succeeds in bringing this profound text to life for us all." Larry Rosenberg, author of Breath by Breath

"An unequaled introduction to the writings of the great Zen master Eihei Dogen that opens doors to Dogen's vast understanding for everyone from newcomer to adept." Jisho Warner, co-editor of Opening the Hand of Thought

"Realizing Genjokoan is a stunning commentary on the famous first chapter of Dogen's Shobogenzo. Like all masterful commentaries, this one finds in the few short lines of the text the entire span of the Buddhist teachings. Okumura has been contemplating, studying, and teaching the Genjokoan for many decades, which is evident in both the remarkable insight he brings to the text and the clarity with which he presents it." Buddhadharma: The Buddhist Review

"This book is a treasure. Though many quite useful translations of Genjokoan are already available, as well as helpful commentaries, this book goes beyond. I have been considering Genjokoan for thirty-five years, and still I enjoyed many helpful revelations inthis book. For all people interested in Zen, this book will be a valuable and illuminating resource. Please enjoy it." from the foreword by Taigen Dan Leighton, editor and co-translator of Dogen's Extensive Record

"A clear and concise commentary on one of Dogen's most difficult pieces." Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen
