Recent translations of Dogen's Mana Shobogenzo, compiled shortly after he returned from China, offer both a prologue to his later writings and an invaluable summing-up of his vigorous, unsurpassable practice. We will be studying selected koans from the collection and, where possible, relating them to later commentaries in the Shobogenzo as well as those of the Song dynasty Chinese masters who were his inspiration. In the process, we will explore both what it means to study koans as texts, and what it is to practice with them in a way that goes beyond study.
