“Heine has written a comprehensive, detailed, and accessible analysis of the textual, religious, and philosophical intricacies of Dōgen’s master work, Shōbōgenzō. This careful work of synthesis builds on his own original scholarship on Zen and the Shōbōgenzō itself, and is one of the most thorough overviews of Dōgen’s thought to date.”
~Richard Jaffe, author of Seeking Sakyamuni: South Asia in the Formation of Japanese Buddhism
