Publisher Description

Poet-Philosopher and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan's Warm Zen is an easy to read and understand poetic interpretation of Dogen's complex philosophical essay 'Bendowa'. Dogen's writing is based on the Buddhist philosophy and experience of 'no-self' and the unconditioned reality of existence-being, also called the 'dharmakaya', the mystical and transcendent body of light. Topic headings and contemporary verses give insight into spiritual awakening.

This clear presentation of the complexities of 'Bendowa' eliminates the redundancies, dogmatism, circularities, anachronisms, Buddhist terms, and dialectical arguments of the original. Dogen's difficult and non-dual philosophical essay has been recast into contemporary verse and subdivided into topics.

A lot of this book went right over my head as a novice to Buddhist practice. However there were a lot of inspirational ideas that I could grasp. Repeated readings could reveal more.
