Hearing with the Eye: Photographs from Point Lobos by John Daido Loori

John Daido Loori, Roshi's stunning array of images taken at Point Lobos, California beautifully complements his commentary of Master Dogen's "Teachings of the Insentient," a profound exploration of the mystical reality of the insentient. The words and images presented in this book are an attempt to enter the hidden universe of the insentient and see "things for what else they are." They are an invitation to discover the full spectrum of the teachings of rocks, mountains, rivers and trees. For, as Daido Roshi says, "To know objects only through dissecting and cataloguing them is to miss their full reality. It is to fall asleep amidst the mystery and to become numb to the wonder of this great Earth."

About the Author

John Daido Loori (1931–2009) was one of the West's leading Zen masters. He was the founder and spiritual leader of the Mountains and Rivers Order and abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery. His work has been most noted for its unique adaptation of traditional Asian Buddhism into an American context, particularly with regard to the arts, the environment, social action, and the use of modern media as a vehicle of spiritual training and social change. Loori was an award-winning photographer and videographer. His art and wildlife photography formed the core of a unique teaching program that integrated art and wilderness training by cultivating a deep appreciation of the relationship of Zen to our natural environment. He was a dharma heir of the influential Japanese Zen master Taizan Maezumi Roshi and he authored many books.
