The Teachings of Zen Master Dogen | [Dogen]

The Teachings of Zen Master Dogen

Dogen (1200-1253 C.E.) founded the Soto school of Zen Buddhism in Japan. His teachings are the very embodiment of the paradoxical blend of mystery and clarity that characterizes Zen. Dogen's approach to meditation has become perhaps the most influential Eastern spiritual practice in the Western world. The selections in this program are from Moon in a Dewdrop.

    "Uneven but rewarding"

    If you enjoy the paradoxical yet profound teachings of Zen Buddhism, then you'll want to listen to this.

    I found both the teachings and the narration a little slow (boring?) until about midway through, when Dogen's teachings became more intellectually interesting, paradoxical and humorous (although it's probably just me).

    Definitely not for everybody, but maybe for you.

    "For the time-being"
    Any additional comments?

    This is for some one a little farther down the path. Understanding basic Buddhist concepts is an absolute prerequisite. To the average western person this may sound baffling and nothing but gibberish, however to the experienced mediator who has gained insight this shines like the rays of a million suns and opens the gate of the gateless gate. Truly Zen in it's finest form. I have listened to this three times over periods of time and a forth listen is certainly in the future.
