Book Giveaway: The Essential Dogen

Book coverEihei Dogen (1200–1253), founder of the Soto School of Zen Buddhism, is one of the greatest religious, philosophical, and literary geniuses of Japan. His writings have been studied by Zen students for centuries, particularly his masterwork, Shobo Genzo or Treasury of the True Dharma Eye. This is the first book to offer the great master’s incisive wisdom in short selections taken from the whole range of his voluminous works. The pithy and powerful readings, arranged according to theme, provide a perfect introduction to Dogen—and inspire spiritual practice in people of all traditions.

This is your chance to receive a free copy of The Essential Dogen. Just leave a comment below. A random winner will be chosen next Monday, July 15. Congratulations to Andy! Thank you all for your thoughtful comments and your readership. Please come back soon for more giveaways.

  1. Dear Editors,

    Thank you for the opportunity to receive a free copy of The Essential Dogan and also for the opportunity to detach from my desire to be the winner.


  2. thank you 🙂 i have been just following Plum Village Deer Park’s Br Phap Hai’s guidance quoting extensively from master Dogen 🙂

  3. Hi I’m a bookseller from Guelph, Ontario Canada and a practising buddhist. I love Shambhala books and have leafed through The Essential Dogen. Looks really good.

  4. I’ve been trying to work my way through the Shobo Genzo, so having the most important excerpts would be very useful.
