Master Jinen relates the Life and Teachings of Dogen Zenji

Master JinenFilm: A Japanese Zen master (Master Jinen) relates the life and teachings of Dogen Zenji, the founder of Soto Zen in Japan some 800 years ago.

This is a passionate account of the teachings taken from the Fukan Zazengi (a section of the Shobogenzo text).

Though Master Jinen speaks in English, sub-titles are very helpful.

This is a wonderful expression of the essence of Zen.

The film runs for approximately one hour.

Read some more Zen teachings from Dogen.

  2. I think I gained some understanding!
