Overview

Dogen (1200-1253), the founder of the Soto Zen sect in Japan, is especially known for introducing to Japanese Buddhism many of the texts and practices that he discovered in China. Heine reconstructs the context of Dogen's travels to and reflections on China by means of a critical look at traditional sources both by and about Dogen in light of recent Japanese scholarship. While many studies emphasize the unique features of Dogen's Japanese influences, this book calls attention to the way Chinese and Japanese elements were fused in Dogen's religious vision. It reveals many new materials and insights into Dogen's main writings, including the multiple editions of the Shobogenzo, and how and when this seminal text was created by Dogen and was edited and interpreted by his disciples. This book is the culmination of the author's thirty years of research on Dogen and provides the reader with a comprehensive approach to the master's life works and an understanding of the overall career trajectory of one of the most important figures in the history of Buddhism and Asian religious thought.

    One desteny #3

    This is stating right where last part ended. Its still in megans pov. <p> the gaurd pulled the girl down and shoved her to the ground infron the the mans throne. He pressed a button on his throne and the girl fell through a trap door. The ground beneth my knees turned transparent. I saw the girl entangled by chains and ropes. She was laying in a sandy area. Then a huge gate opend and a huge beast came out. Id never seen anything like it before. It was at least 20 feet tall. It stood over the girl. "Watch what happens to lindi the crying slave girl." The gaint bent over and picked her up. He inspected her then walked over to a huge pile of dead cows meat and tossed her into it. He walked back into his cave and came back with a very long rope. He tied her hands together with the end. Then he rolled her around in the cow meat. Then he took her into his cave. I waited for five horrible minutes. Then the gaint apperd pulling a cage behind him. Inside was the slave girl Lindi. Her arms dangled out of the cage. It was only like theree feet wids and six feet high. She was shackled to the bottom and ther neck had a metal collor around it. The gaint threw a chain up through the trapdoor that conected to the ceeling. Then the cage came up and hung above the throne. "That collor will constrict her neck until she sufocates if i press this button. The same thing gose for Sun over here and you." A gaurd had just put a metal collor matching the other girls around my neck. "As you can see i need a new slave by my side. So come here." I stood up and walked to him. He cut the rope around my hands and put lindis old chain around my neck. "Kiss my feet" he orderd. Both me and sun kneeled before him and kissed his feet. After we were finished with that. He made me change into an out fit just like the other two slave girls. for the rest of the day he showed me punishments. By the time hevretired for bed me had already almost strangled lindi 7 times. Whiped her 1087 times. Made sun kiss his feet 3000 times. Thrown her in a huge under ground maze full of trapps and monsters. When they pulle sun out she had been captured by 8 difrent monsters. Whiped by them all. She had acted as there slave for an hour each and been draged through a huge mud puddle by her legs. Sun and i were now chained by the kings bed. We slept on te floor. Lindi was chained to a post in the corner. She had to sleep on spikes. I was awake all night. I felt really bad for sun and lindi. The king had told me Sun had been kidnapped from her famiky at age 12 and sold to him. Her kidnapper had tourtured her by leaving her chained to a cow, shoving her face in cow pies, make her sleep in the hog pen, and many other terrible ways. Lindi was the daughter of one of the gaurds but he hated her so he killed her mother and sold her to him. The gaurd had made her cheep if he promised to touture her regularly. I looked at sun. She was 15 with blonde hair and blue eyes. She had a streak of gray through it. The king didnt tell me why. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br> thanks for reasing. Next part at next result. Post coments and charecters at res one
