    A wonderful version of Dogen s Bendowa

    A beautiful and very well written translation of the Bendowa by Anzan Roshi. As I am about to start to work on this in private dokusan with all my students and also some of the priests in training, I thought you might enjoy it.

    Thank you Taigu! I'll start reading it tonight
    Please remember I am only a priest in training. I could be wrong in everything I say. Slap me if needed.
