The Tiger's Cave : Translations of Japanese Zen Texts (Second Zen Reader), Hardback Book

The Tiger's Cave : Translations of Japanese Zen Texts (Second Zen Reader) Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Zen Buddhism series

Description

The Japanese texts translated here give a fascinating picture of actual Zen life - the life of the traditional temple training, with many stories and a number of historical incidents connected with Zen masters.

The main text is the important commentary by a contemporary Soto Zen abbot on the Heart Sutra - the shortest and most difficult sutra in Mahayana Buddhism.

Then comes a translation of the Yasen Kanna, a short autobiographical piece by Hakuin, the Japanese Zen teacher, monk and poet who revitalized Rinzai Zen in the eighteenth century.

The remaining texts show what Zen means in Japan today.
