About the Author

STEVEN HEINE is a scholar in the field of Zen Buddhist history and thought, particularly the life and teachings of Dogen. He has also taught and published extensively on Japanese religion and society in worldwide perspectives. He is Director of Florida International University's Asian Studies Program.


"An extraordinary and fascinating exploration of Zen Master Eihei Dogen's life and works done by scholar Steven Heine, who has unwrapped Dogen's legacy bravely, richly, and skillfully."-Joan Halifax, author of Being with Dying and Standing at the Edge

"Heine's definitive research illuminates the life and creative process of a towering thinker-a Zen monk who initiated an uncompromised monastic tradition in Japan almost eight hundred years ago and whose work begins to shed light on issues of our time worldwide."-Kazuaki Tanahashi, editor of Treasury of the True Dharma Eye: Zen Master Dogen's Shobo Genzo

"Steven Heine has condensed decades of scholarship into this precise, concise, and remarkably engaging read. His study goes deeper and farther than the average introduction to the life and work of Zen master Dogen (1200-1253). Heine offers new critical insights into the many myths and legends that animate Dogen's medieval biographies, and he provides an extremely helpful chronological analysis of almost all of Dogen's works, including his main collections and overlooked miscellanea. Heine's original translations and final reflections upon Dogen's lasting legacy today are thought-provoking and sure to prove inspiring to Zen students-at any level-who wish to make the lessons of a great pioneering mind present in the world today."-Pamela D. Winfield, author of Icons and Iconoclasm in Japanese Buddhism: Kukai and Dogen on the Art of Enlightenment

"Based on his lifetime of research, Heine offers a superb introduction to Dogen's life and work. By exploring Dogen's vast oeuvre, he illuminates Dogen's fascinating thought on enlightenment and understanding of Buddhist practice. Dogen: Japan's Original Zen Teacher is a highly recommended read for all Zen practitioners as well as scholars in Buddhist and Japanese studies."-Michaela Mross, Assistant Professor in Religious Studies, Stanford University
