How To Cook Your Life : From The Zen Kitchen To Enlightenment


SKU: 9781590302910 Categories: , Tag:


In the thirteenth century, Zen master Dogen‚Ä∞√õ√ìperhaps the most significant of all Japanese philosophers, and the founder of the Japanese Soto Zen sect‚Ä∞√õ√ìwrote a practical manual ofInstructions for the Zen Cook . In drawing parallels between preparing meals for the Zen monastery and spiritual training, he reveals far more than simply the rules and manners of the Zen kitchen; he teaches us how to “cook,” or refine our lives. In this volume Kosho Uchiyama Roshi undertakes the task of elucidating Dogen’s text for the benefit of modern-day readers of Zen. Taken together, his translation and commentary truly constitute a “cookbook for life,” one that shows us how to live with an unbiased mind in the midst of our workaday world.
