Secrets Of Blue Cliff Record



The BLUE CLIFF RECORD is a classic collection of one hundred traditional Zen teaching stories or KOANS. Although it has been available in English for many years, authentic traditions of commentary on the text have been unavailable to the public, even to most specialists in the field. This translation fills the gap in the East-West transmission of Zen lore by including the commentaries of two of the greatest Zen masters of early modern Japan, Hakuin Ekaku of the Rinzai sect and Tenkei Denson of the Soto sect. The penetrating insights and timeless teachings of these two legendary figures shed new light on this cherished masterwork of Zen literature.
