"The author generously sprinkles personal stories and Zen lore throughout this insightful book, laughing-sometimes through tears-at the perils and joys encountered by those who persevere along this ancient path. An insightful book." (Bodhin Kjolhede, Abbot of the Rochester Zen Center)
"A wonderful book--I highly recommend it." (Nonin Chowaney, Abbot of the Nebraska Zen Center)
"As Dogen Zenji said, Dharma teachers and disciples are like entwining of vines (katto in Japanese). Whether disciples are in the stage of faithfully following the teacher's style of teaching and practice, of rebelliously trying to become independent from the teacher, or of being mature enough for going beyond, the teacher's dharma always deeply penetrates the disciple. In this book Dosho Port offers one of the examples of continuation of Dharma from teacher to disciple, from the East to the West." (Shohaku Okumura)
"This is a lovely, lovely book that can be read fruitfully by both beginners and those who are deeply familiar with the Zen way. Dosho Port is a worthy heir to his teacher." (James Ishmael Ford, abbot of Boundless Way Zen and author of Zen Master WHO? and If You're Lucky, Your Heart Will Break)

A quite different view of the Roshi than another biographical attempt I have read. In biography the accuracy of the lens has much to do with the accuracy of the portrait. I understand the decision not to explore the Roshi's sexual indiscretions, the book would have wandered away from Zen, but still, it is part of the picture that I would have liked filled in by an understanding hand. Maybe the next book?
This is the perfect reaction to all the Zen books that act has pacifiers to those who want Zen to be a path of personal self improvement. This book gives you the visceral feeling of true Zen practice.

This book was neither easy for me to read nor easy to set down. I have read most of it twice. Dosho Mike Port really dusts the middle path, making it visible to the younger... Read morePublished on September 12, 2009 by C. Hintz
