Dogen Zenji's classic collection of 301 koans.
Translated by Gudo Wafu Nishijima, edited by Michael Luetchford and Jeremy Pearson.
301 koan stories collected by Master Dogen during his years in China. Master Dogen used many of these stories as the basis for his formal lectures in his major work, the Shobogenzo; they record conversations between Buddhist masters and their students. Shinji Shobogenzo includes many well known koan stories, with many interesting and less familiar ones, together with the comments of a contemporary Buddhist master renowned for his clear and no-nonsense approach.
