Product description


"Eihei Dogen: Mystical Realist remains a valuable contribution to all of modern Zen commentary."

"A essential volume in any Dogen library."--Zoketsu Norman Fischer, former abbot, San Francisco Zen Center, and author of Taking Our Places: The Buddhist Path to Truly Growing Up

"Dogen is no easy read--fortunately Kim's book, itself a polished gem, expertly guides a reader into what is simultaneously rich and playful in Dogen's Buddhist vision."--William R. LaFleur, author of Awesome Nightfall: The Life, Times, and Poetry of Saigyo

"Down through the years and through its earlier editions, it was always to Dr. Kim's book that I turned first in any matter relating to Dogen. Now from his retirement from a fine academic career, we have the fruit of his lifetime of research and meditation. I am very grateful."--Robert Aitken, author of Taking the Path of Zen and The Morning Star: New and Selected Zen Writings

"Kim's work remains a beacon of scholarship into the mind of one of the most remarkable spiritual giants in the history of Zen."--John Daido Loori, abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery

"This book is an excellent comprehensive introduction to Dogen's massive corpus of intricate writings as well as to his elegantly simple yet profound practice. It stands as the best overall general introduction to Dogen's teaching."--From the new foreword by Taigen Dan Leighton

"This book's re-issue represents an important moment in the history of Dogen studies. Kim's work still stands out for the depth and clarity of its elucidation of Dogen as a religious thinker and practitioner."--Mark Unno, Editorial Board, Journal of Religious Ethics, and author of Shingon Refractions --This text refers to the paperback edition.
