Description

Volume Four of Classics of Buddhism and Zen features several essential works on the practice of Zen koans, including a complete translation of Gateless Barrier, a classic collection of Zen parables, paradoxes, and teaching stories. Also included is a collection of poetry from the Chinese Buddhist poet Wen-Siang.

The volume includes:

  • Transmission of Light: Zen in the Art of Enlightenment: This first complete modern translation of the classic Denkoroku illustrates how to attain satori.
  • Unlocking the Zen Koan: This translation of the koan classic Wumenguan also includes Cleary's selection of comments by great Chinese Zen masters.
  • Original Face: An Anthology of Rinzai Zen: An anthology of Japanese Rinzai Zen from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries.
  • Timeless Spring: A Soto Zen Anthology: Contains sayings, informal talks, and public cases of important Soto Zen masters.
  • Zen Antics: 100 Stories of Enlightenment: Unlike many of the baffling dialogues between Zen masters preserved in koan literature, the stories retold here are pointedly simple but with a richness and subtlety that make them worth reading again and again.
  • Record of Things Heard: From the Treasury of the Eye of the True Teaching: This Zen classic is a collection of talks by the great Japanese Zen Master Dogen, founder of the Soto school.
  • Sleepless Nights: Verses for the Wakeful: Among the greatest masterpieces of the secular Buddhist poetry, these verses mock the folly of tyrants and celebrate the indomitability of life.
