"The True Dharma Eye" is a collection of three hundred koans, or teaching stories, compiled by Dogen, a key figure in Zen history. Dogen was also the thirteenth-century founder of Soto Zen in Japan, and these koans were compiled during his study with many Zen masters in China. Here they are translated by the renowned American Zen master John Daido Loori. Each koan is accompanied by commentary and a capping verse. The resulting volume presents readers with a uniquely contemporary perspective on Dogen's profound teachings and their relevance for twenty-first-century Western practitioners of Zen.
