Product Description:

Koans are enigmatic spiritual formulas used for religious training in the Zen Buddhist tradition. Arguing that our understanding of the koan tradition has been severely limited, contributors to this collection examine previously unrecognized factors in the formation of this tradition, and highlight the rich complexity and diversity of koan practice and literature.



Summary: Excellent resource
Rating: 5

I can't disagree with most of these reviewers. This is an excellent resource for understanding the koan tradition. Many of the essays are penetrating and leave the reader with an ever deeper and wider understanding of the koan tradition. I do in fact think this volume surpasses Zen Dust. The lengthy review by Ikeda pretty much tells you all you need to know about the contents. But let me just say that this is as true a "drink of water" as any other on the topic. Like any scholarly work on religion, its inspiration comes in its analysis. Yes, koans can be analyzed, studied, and researched, and they should be.


Summary: Interesting, but problematic
Rating: 3

Touted - in places, as the most definitive study of the Zen Koan to date - in Western sources, I would hesitate to accord such status to this book, not least the idea that it has supplanted Zen Dust (Miura/Sasaki). While certainly interesting , this study is not quite the innovative venture promised in the cover blurb - and, of the eleven chapters in its pages, the final entry by Sogen Hori, a practicing Zen monk, left me with the most misgivings (I explain why, later in this review). It might be useful to list chapter headings, noting the focus of the contributors. The text opens with an Introduction by Stephen Heine and Dale S. Wright.
