Dōgen’s “Truth”

Dōgen’s “Truth”

(p.85) Chapter Nine Dōgen’s “Truth”
Purifying Zen

Steve Bein

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines what Dōgen calls “Buddha's truth.” It considers four chapters in the Shōbōgenzō addressing the notion of truth: “Raihai-tokuzui,” “Busshō,” “Dōtoku,” and “Kattō.” The chapter also considers what Dōgen says about buddha-nature, “expressing the truth” in relation to the self-development of logos, and how the truth constantly manifests itself in self-cultivation and strenuous zazen.

Keywords:   zazen, Dōgen, Buddha's truth, Shōbōgenzō, buddha-nature, logos, self-cultivation
