The six paramitas—generosity, ethical discipline, patience, heroic effort, concentration, and wisdom—are among the core teachings of Buddhism across all its schools. For newcomers and seasoned practitioners alike, they are foundational practices to enter and realize the mind of Buddha. In this sincere and powerful book, Zen teacher Reb Anderson offers teachings and practice stories that elucidate and open up each paramita. Taken together, the six “perfections” form an integrated and complete path—the path of the heroic bodhisattva who vows to practice ceaselessly for the welfare and liberation of all beings.

Eiehi Dogen (1200-1253) is a towering intellectual and spiritual figure in Zen whose writings and recorded talks have been read and studied for the last 750 years. Dogen's principal works have appeared in English translation before, but never in a collection like this, which pulls together his best, most practical and accessible teachings especially useful to those who meditate. BEYOND THINKING features Dogen's classic meditation instructions; his advice on the practice of zazen, or sitting meditation; guide- lines for community life; and some of his most inspirational talks. BEYOND THINKING enables modern- day people to learn meditation practice directly from one of the great figures of Zen history- demonstrating that the "classics" can be just as accessible as books by contemporary teachers. The translations have been done by some of the most prominent American Zen teachers, including the renowned poet Philip Whalen; Reb Anderson, author of WARM SMILES FROM COLD MOUNTAINS ; Edward Espe Brown, editor of NOT ALWAYS SO: PRACTICING THE TRUE SPIRIT OF ZEN; Norman Fischer, author of OPENING TO YOU: ZEN- INSPIRED TRANSLATIONS OF THE PSALMS, and Kazuaki Tanahashi. BEYOND THINKING also includes a bibliography and an extensive glossary.

Eihei Dogen, the thirteenth-century Zen master who founded the Japanese Soto School of Zen, is renowned as one of the world's most remarkable religious thinkers. As Shakespeare does with English, Dogen utterly transforms the language of Zen, using it in novel and extraordinarily beautiful ways to point to everything important in the religious life. He is known for two major works. The first work, the massive Shobogenzo (Treasury of the True Dharma Eye), represents his early teachings and exists in myriad English translations; the second work, the Eihei Koroku, is a collection of all his later teachings, including short formal discourses to the monks training at his temple, longer informal talks, and koans with his commentaries, as well as short appreciatory verses on various topics. The Shobogenzo has received enormous attention in Western Zen and Western Zen literature, and with the publication of this watershed volume, the Eihei Koroku will surely rise to commensurate stature. Dogen's Extensive Record is the first-ever complete and scholarly translation of this monumental work into English and this edition is the first time it has been available in paperback. This edition contains extensive and detailed research and annotation by scholars, translators and Zen teachers Taigen Dan Leighton and Shohaku Okumura, as well as forewords by the eighteenth-century poet-monk Ryokan and Tenshin Reb Anderson, former abbot of the San Francisco Zen Center - plus introductory essays from Dogen scholar Steven Heine, and the prominent, late American Zen master John Daido Loori.
