How to Cook Your Life : From the Zen Kitchen to Enlightenment
In the thirteenth century, Zen master Dogen-perhaps the most significant of allJapanese philosophers, and the founder of the Japanese Soto Zen sect-wrote a practical manual of Instructionsfor the Zen Cook.In drawing parallels between preparing meals for the Zen monastery andspiritual training, he reveals far more than simply the rules and manners ofthe Zen kitchen; he teaches us how to "cook," or refine our lives. Inthis volume Kosho Uchiyama Roshi undertakes the task of elucidating Dogen'stext for the benefit of modern-day readers of Zen. Taken together, histranslation and commentary truly constitute a "cookbook for life,"one that shows us how to live with an unbiased mind in the midst of ourworkaday world.
