It Came from Beyond Zen!: More Practical Advice from Dogen, Japan's Greatest Zen Master (Treasury of the True Dharma Eye) | Sit Down and Shut Up | Hardcore Zen | There is No God and He is Always With You | Zen Wrapped in Karma Dipped in Chocolate | Sex, Sin, and Zen | Master Dogen's Shobogenzo
ÂEven if the whole universe is nothing but a bunch of jerks doing all kinds of jerk-type things, there is still liberation in simply not being a jerk.â Â Eihei Dogen (1200Â1253 CE)
The Shobogenzo (The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye) is a revered eight-hundred-year-old Zen Buddhism classic written by the Japanese monk Eihei Dogen. Despite the timeless wisdom of his teachings, many consider the book difficult to understand and daunting to read. In Donât Be a Jerk, Zen priest and bestselling author Brad Warner, through accessible paraphrasing and incisive commentary, applies Dogenâs teachings to modern times. While entertaining and sometimes irreverent, Warner is also an astute scholar who sees in Dogen very modern psychological concepts, as well as insights on such topics as feminism and reincarnation. Warner even shows that Dogen offered a ÂMiddle Wayâ in the currently raging debate between science and religion. For curious readers worried that Dogenâs teachings are too philosophically opaque, Donât Be a Jerk is hilarious, understandable, and wise.
