Each of the twenty chapters takes a teaching of some past master of Zen mostly Master Dogen , and explores it through these student-teacher interactions. The chapters begin with an introduction to the teaching at hand, conclude with a wrap up paragraph, and in between are an assortment of transcripts This book is a collection of transcripts of what are called dharma encounters, dokusan, or dharma combat.
The chapters begin with an introduction to the teaching at hand, conclude with a wrap up paragraph, and in between are an assortment of transcripts.
The students are trying to interact with the teacher in an unorthodox and outside-the-box manner. So as they relate the teachings to events in their own life or their own unique way of viewing the world, one gains access to those off angles of insight. On the other hand, reading the transcripts can be repetitive as the teacher is trying to make sure that all students have some common understanding. While there are clever and insightful students, there are also individuals who seem to just be trying to get there turn over with, who appear to have no interest in the topic at hand, or who think some random action like a war whoop will be evaluated as a deep and meaningful insight on the subject by the teacher spoiler alert: it almost never is.
This error is of little consequence to the point being made, but the reader should be aware that the priority was to be faithful in conveying the transcripts rather than to accurately convey information. The organization seems sound enough. The book begins with rudimentary topics such as zazen sitting meditation and progresses into more philosophical and esoteric topics.
As mentioned, there are twenty chapters, each built around a specific teaching and with the same organization. I enjoyed this book.retedycy.tk
