"I've ordered The koroku by Leighton
I wanted to know what are the differences between the Shobogenzo and the Koroku.
I know the first one his the first part of this life, and the second one the second part of his life, and that the Shobogenzo was written to develop the theory of what he learnt in China to bring it in Japan, and The second Koroku is a collection of Dharma talks, when Soto was well implanted.
So the questions are:
1. What I wrote is correct?
2. In those two books, do we have the entiere teaching, philosophy of Dogen?
3. What part of his teachings do his other books have to add to the Shobogenzo and The koroku?
Thank you for your answer
