Shobogenzo
Our teachings are based on the works of Zen Master Dogen, the 13th century monk and philosopher who established the practice of Zazen in Japan. The record of his life's teachings, the Shobogenzo, is now available in English in 4 volumes from Windbell Publications, the publishing arm of Dogen Sangha.
