    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    An excellent dichotomy of ¿¿¿¿ Sho¿bo¿genzo¿ or the Treasury of the True Dharma Eye by ¿¿¿¿¿¿ Eihei Do¿gen Zenji.

    All nine chapters are wonderfully engaging and thought provoking of course.

    ¿¿ Bussho or Buddha Nature is diverse or compelling and should be read several times as it is the most detailed or in-depth analysis.

    A great subsequent reading to the original aforementioned text by Zenji.
