Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Move over, Martin Heidegger. The late Japanese Zen master Katagiri Roshi offers a Zen interpretation of being and time. As text editor Andrea Martin explains in her introduction, the core Buddhist teachings of impermanence and emptiness lend themselves to considerations of time and being. Zen may be anticoncept and nonabstract, but it is certainly pro-insight. So Katagiri explains his understanding of time, based squarely on his interpretation of the work of influential 13th-century Zen master Dogen, whose work has inspired a number of contemporary Zen teachers. But Katagiri is no academic, and the language he uses to express complex ideas is extremely simple (this is called going into mud and water) and often enthusiastic (Touch it and bounce!). The editor has successfully transmitted the oral style that helps make the content accessible. Katagiri conveys a zest for Zen understanding that differs from the calm inscrutability of other Zen Buddhists; he also brings up terms like hope and beauty. Katagiri's statement I think the purpose of spiritual life is to just go toward the future with great hope may sound metaphysical, but it comes from a teacher who has spent time on the meditation cushion and applied insight to the day-to-day life that Zen embraces. (July 10)

Review

"Move over, Martin Heidegger. The late Japanese Zen master Katagiri Roshi offers a Zen interpretation of being and time. . . . Katagiri conveys a zest for Zen understanding that differs from the calm inscrutability of other Zen Buddhists."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“In this book, Katagiri Roshi presents Dogen Zenji’s teachings on ‘being-time’ and teaches how the blossom of our life force can flourish amidst the flow of change. I recommend this book to all Zen practitioners and to anyone who wishes to enrich and ripen their life.”—Shohaku Okumura Roshi, Director, Soto Zen Buddhism International Center

“By showing how to cultivate awareness of the changing moment, Katagiri Roshi leads us toward timeless time, the absolute nature. This book is a spring of nectar for new and seasoned practitioners alike.”—Tulku Thondup, author of Peaceful Death, Joyful Rebirth

“These are brilliant and lucid reflections on the immense significance of the present moment. These liberating teachings by Katagiri Roshi are unique and precious in their ability to help us learn to use time skillfully—and not to be used by it. A major contribution for all schools of meditation.”—Larry Rosenberg, founder of the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center and author of Breath by Breath and Living in the Light of Death

“This lively book presents the inner nature of true presence, beyond time and space, right within the time that includes all times. In the Zen art of being time finely portrayed herein, multidirectional sense of temporality is pivotal to the dynamic expression of our humanity and wholeness.”—Dan Leighton, author of Visions of Awakening Space and Time: Dogen and the Lotus Sutra --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
