Sobre o livro
Vol. 2 of Brad Warners Radical but Reverent Paraphrasing of DogensTreasury of the True Dharma Eye
In Japan in 1253, one of the great thinkers of his time died — and the world barely noticed. That man was the Zen monk Eihei Dogen. For centuries his main work,Shobogenzo, languished in obscurity, locked away in remote monasteries until scholars rediscovered it in the twentieth century. What took so long? In Brad Warners view, Dogen was too ahead of his time to find an appreciative audience. To bring Dogens work to a bigger readership, Warner began paraphrasingShobogenzo, recasting it in simple, everyday language. The first part of this project resulted inDont Be a Jerk, and now Warner presents this second volume,It Came from Beyond Zen! Once again, Warner uses wry humor and incisive commentary to bridge the gap between past and present, making Dogens words clearer and more relevant than ever before.
