Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Blue Cliff Record is a classic text of Zen Buddhism, designed to assist in the activation of dormant human potential. The core of this extraordinary work is a collection of one hundred traditional citations and stories, selected for their ability to bring about insight and enlightenment. These vignettes are known as gongan in Chinese and koan in Japanese.

Secrets of the Blue Cliff Record is a fresh translation featuring newly translated commentary from two of the greatest Zen masters of early modern Japan, Hakuin Ekaku (1685–1768) of the Rinzai sect of Zen and Tenkei Denson (1648–1735) of the Soto sect of Zen. This translation and commentary on The Blue Cliff Record sheds new light on the meaning of this central Zen text.

Synopsis:

The "Blue Cliff Record" is a classic collection of 100 traditional Zen teaching stories or koans. This translation includes the commentaries of two of the greatest Zen masters of early modern Japan - Hakuin Ekaku of the Rinzai sect and Tenkei Denson of the Soto sect.

Synopsis:

The Blue Cliff Record is a classic collection of one hundred traditional Zen teaching stories or koans. Although it has been available in English for many years, authentic traditions of commentary on the text have been unavailable to the public, even to most specialists in the field. This translation fills the gap in the East-West transmission of Zen lore by including the commentaries of two of the greatest Zen masters of early modern Japan, Hakuin Ekaku of the Rinzai sect (1685-1768) and Tenkei Denson of the Soto sect (1648-1735). The penetrating insights and timeless teachings of these two legendary figures shed new light on this cherished masterwork of Zen literature.
