The "Record of Linji" stands as one of the great classics of the Zen tradition, and modern Zen master and reformer Hisamatsu Shin'ichi offers a lively and penetrating exploration of the religious essence of the text. The Record is a compilation of the sayings of Linji, the Chinese founder of Rinzai Zen. Several decades ago, Hisamatsu gave the 22 talks translated here. This book features a preface by renowned Zen philosopher Abe Masao and an introduction by Yanagida Seizan, a leading scholar of classical Zen texts. The translators have added annotation for technical terms and textual references.
