These new translations of the thirteenth-century Zen master Dogen—one of most original and important Zen writers—illustrate the rational side of Zen, which has been obscured through the centuries, tainting peoples understanding of it.

Rational Zen consists of enlightening selections from Dogens two masterworks, Treasury of Eyes of True Teaching (the famed Shobogenzo, Japans most sophisticated philosophical work) and Universal Book of Eternal Peace, which until now has been unavailable in English. The translator also provides explanations of the inner meanings of Dogens writings and sayings—the first commentaries of their kind of English.

A compendium of authentic source materials further enhances the readers insight into Dogens methods, linking them to the great classical traditions of Buddhism that ultimately flowered in Zen.
