Fri, 26 Apr, 2019 - 09:38

'Abandon self; accept reality.' - Interview with author David Brazier

Mon, 11 Mar, 2019 - 16:24

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing respected Buddhist teacher and author, David Brazier, about his upcoming book, The Dark Side of the Mirror: forgetting the self in Dōgen’s Genjō Kōan, due for release on 19 March 2019.

Wed, 27 Feb, 2019 - 15:44

There are just three weeks to go before the publication of our latest book, The Dark Side of the Mirror: forgetting the self in Dōgen’s Genjō Kōan, by respected Buddhist teacher and author David Brazier.

Genjō Kōan is the most important chapter in Zen master Dōgen’s principal major work, the Shōbōgenzō. Although Genjō Kōan is familiar to Buddhists both east and west, it is still not well understood. This new translation and commentary draws back the curtain revealing the deeper meaning of the text in language that...

That’s great you were able to offer this internship.

We love doing it. We have gotten a yearly intern from the nearby ARU each year. They have all been excellent and reported back that they learned from the experience. Plus they tend to be friendly, nice people! And we get free voluntary work from them. Win-win.
