Formative Texts in the History of Zen Buddhism

Edited by Steven Heine and Dale S. Wright

Focusing on the early history of Zen in Korea and Japan, the essays collected here assess many of the most important canonical texts that set the Zen tradition in motion throughout East Asia. Enormously diverse in style and structure, these texts underscore the varieties of Zen practice, from rules of daily practice to sermons and meditation manuals. The all new essays in this volume were written by an international team of distinguished scholars of Buddhism. It is aimed at broad audience including college students, Zen practitioners, and scholars of East Asian history, religion, and culture, as well as specialists in Buddhist history.
