Quote of the week

…it wasn’t until the twentieth century that Dogen began to be widely read outside the scholarly community. I once asked Nishijima Roshi why he thought this was so. He said he believed it was because Dogen was so far ahead of his time that very few people in his own day could understand him.
We need Dogen today – desperately. His philosophy offers us a way out of our continuing battles between the idealistic and the materialistic views. We do not have to choose between science and religion.

From Brad Warner’s book “Don’t Be A Jerk” (New World Library, 2016, page XV of the introduction), about Soto Zen’s 13th century Japanese founder and his masterwork Shobogenzo

For those with further interest, this is the book we are discussing at Monday evening dharma study, starting at 6;30 pm!
