Buddhadharma : Spri 2013
SPRING 2 0 1 3 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 79 the Way), combine careful readings of the text with particularly insightful interpretations. The Bendowa is the opening section of one of the two main versions of the Shobogenzo (the 95-fas- cicle version as opposed to the 75-fas- cicle one). It deals with the doctrine of jijuyu zanmai (the samadhi of self- enjoyment). Munnich introduces the image of a dancer to illustrate this idea; she talks about the majestic feeling of the dharma dancing through the prac- titioner. In another noteworthy essay, Seisen Saunders considers the ethical ramifications of Shoaku Makusa (Not Doing Evils) by examining the decep- tively simple behavior of a five-year-old child at a local playground. She talks about how the child makes “friend- ship moves” rather than “friendship blocks.” In another effective essay, Shinshu Roberts explicates the notion of here- and-now reality expressed in the Uji (Being/Time) fascicle. Dogen points out that one cannot ever think that the mis- takes of the past are left behind as we charge toward the future. Because of the unity of past, present, and future, according to Dogen there is no sense of arriving at an illusory endpoint. Rather, there is only an ongoing process of self-cultivation. Finally, Chozen Bays makes good sense of some of the thorniest writing in Dogen’s world of contradictions. In an essay about the udambara flower, the legendary blossom symbolizing the Bud- dha’s enlightenment, Bays examines the plant species in both ancient and mod- ern times. Her essay is based on the Udonge fascicle. Despite Dogen’s egalitarian teach- ings, it remains a matter of historical debate whether monks in ancient China or Japan would have ever bowed to their female counterparts to receive the marrow. However, the essays included in this volume demonstrate that what- ever the truth of history, it is high time that men do. REVIEWS
