Product description


“This book is a great achievement. Articulate, nuanced, and wonderful.” (Jan Chozen Bays, author of Mindfulness on the Go)

"In Being-Time, Shinshu Roberts gives us a wise, kind and wonderfully patient guide to one of Dogen’s most important and enigmatic texts. Now, more than ever, these profound old teachings are relevant to our lives in the here and now. This is a book I will treasure and return to time and time again." (Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being)

“A powerful and compelling reflection on one of the great Zen texts by Eihei Dogen, founder of Japanese Soto Zen, and one of the signal Mahayana Zen figures. Shinshu Roberts brings intelligence, grace, and a fully lived life to this book. Both scholarly and intimate, I recommend this book to anyone hoping to delve more deeply into the Zen Way.” (James Ishmael Ford, author of Introduction to Zen Koans)

“This book is one of the excellent fruits of American Zen. I deeply appreciate Shinshu’s work.” (Shohaku Okumura, author of Realizing Genjokoan)
