Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The popularity of Zen Buddhism in the West has produced a variety of manuals from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance to The Zen of Bowel Movements: A Spiritual Approach to Constipation that explain ways to incorporate the practice of Zen into everyday life. Now, in this single volume, Foster and Shoemaker have gathered the great masterpieces of Zen Buddhist writing from China and Japan. The first section of this marvelous anthology focuses on the writings of Chinese Ch'an Buddhism, out of which the Zen Buddhism of Japan grew, and the second section gathers the writings of students and teachers of Zen Buddhism. Included in this wide-ranging collection are poems, lectures and essays from figures as diverse as Bodhidharma, the Indian Buddhist monk responsible for introducing Buddhism, tea and meditation into China; the great Japanese roshi Dogen; and Basho, the Japanese poet whose style reflects the traditional principles of Zen. A helpful introductory essay placing individual writers in historical context accompanies each selection, and the editors have provided graceful new translations of the primary texts. Because of its scope and beauty, this collection should become the standard against which all other collections of Zen Buddhist writings are measured (Aug.)
Library Journal
Now, thanks to Zen teacher Foster and Shoemaker, the editor in chief at Counterpoint, the masterpieces of Zen Buddhist writings are available in a single volume. The editors include writings from the Chinese Ch'an Buddhism out of which Zen grew as well as poetry and other writings foundational to the Japanese Zen traditions. The collection gathers voices as diverse as Bodhidharma, the Indian Buddhist monk who brought Buddhism and tea to China, and Basho, the great Japanese Zen haikai poet. Each selection is introduced by a brief essay setting the writers in context. Because of its range and the wealth of its materials, this volume will be the standard introduction to Zen Buddhism for years to come. Highly recommended.
