Eihei Dogen (1200-1253), one of the foremost figures of Japanese philosophy and letters, was among the first to transmit Zen Buddhism to Japan from China. Founder of the Soto school of Zen (one of the two dominant modern schools), he has had an influence that extends beyond Zen to literature, philosophy, and religious thought. Kazuaki Tanahashi has collaborated with several other Zen authorities to produce sensitive and accurate English renderings of Dogen's most important texts. MOON IN A DEWDROP contains twenty-four essays covering the key teachings of the great master, as well as extensive background materials that will enable Western readers to fully grasp the significance of this work.
