Most poetic, accessible translation, great glossary!

I have read many translations of the essays in Dogen's SHOBOGENZO and each one offers it's own gifts. This volume is the most accessible (including gender-inclusive), and the most poetic I have read. Especially gentle and beautiful is the translation of Dogen's essay called BAIKA (Plum Blossoms). MOON IN A DEWDROP also has by far the best glossary of Zen terms used by Dogen; in fact I often consult it as a help to reading other books about Zen. There is a very important guide to Dogen's Zen called THE ESSENCE OF DOGEN by Masanobu Takahashi -- along with MOON IN A DEWDROP, the two books together open Dogen's teaching almost effortlessly.

Most poetic, accessible translation, great glossary!

Dogen is my spiritual father in Zen, not because I am special, but because he is -- as small as I truly am, he always makes me feel comfortable in his literary presence, and so I have been able to learn so much from him. I have read many translations of the essays in his SHOBOGENZO and each one offers it's own gifts. This volume is the most accessible (including gender-inclusive), and the most poetic I have read. Especially gentle and beautiful is the translation of Dogen's essay called "Baika" (Plum Blossoms). MOON IN A DEWDROP also has by far the best glossary of Zen terms used by Dogen; in fact I often consult it as a help to reading other books about Zen.
