About the Author

Hongzhi-the twelfth-century Chinese Zen master who was a predecessor of the famous philosopher Dogen-is celebrated in Zen literature as one of its most artistically graceful stylists. He was the first to articulate silent illumination, commonly known to Zen students as "just sitting." Hongzhi's influential teaching is presented in here as a timeless guide to spiritual awareness.

Taigen Daniel Leighton, a translator and teacher, is the author of Bodhisattva Archetypes: Classic Buddhist Guides to Awakening and Their Modern Expression, and is the translator of Dogen's The Wholehearted Way. He teaches at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, the San Francisco Zen Center, and the Green Gulch Retreat Center, among other places.


"This is a work of outstanding inspiration. I never get tired of reading it." --Sojun Mel Weitsman, founder and abbot of Berkley Zen Center
