A Tiger’s Cave – translations of Japanese Zen Texts – pub 1964

The Japanese texts translated give a fascinating pciture of actual Zen life–the life of traditional temple training, with many stories and a number of historical incidents connected with Zen masters.  The main text is a commentary on the Heart Sutra by Abot Obora, then comes a short autobiographical piece by Hakuin.  The remaining texts -two discourses by Rosen Takashina and some koans by Sogen Omori, a Zen master who was also a sword master, show what Zen in Japan means today.
