This eleven-volume set gathers together some essential texts on Zen Buddhism. They range from newly-translated sixteenth-century documents from a Japanese temple to a modern work on the usefulness of Zen precepts in the ‘helping professions’ of medicine and the social services. Works also detail the rigours of training for a life as a Buddhist priest, the links between yoga and Zen, Zen and swordsmanship, and other Japanese Zen traditions.
