A Tiger’s Cave - translations of Japanese Zen Texts - pub 1964
published 1964 Trevor P Leggett
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.
