Snow Falling in Moonlight: Odes in Praise of Dogen's Shobogenzo Tai Sheridan, Ph.D. read online review & book description:

Dogen (1200-1253) is the father of Soto Zen. Poet-Philosopher and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan has transformed twelve of his spiritual essays from the Shobogenzo (The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye), into poems about non-dual wisdom, luminous mind, loving kindness, and Zen practice.

The odes evolved from the central teaching of Dogen's essays, and are structured and built upon his original images. The selections were chosen to be of interest and use to all Buddhists and the public. There is a legacy of Zen poetry that praises all manner of living things. The Odes reveal the wonder and mystery of life, and open the mind of spiritual curiosity and inquiry.
