Buddhadharma : Spri 2013
SPRING 2 0 1 3 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 77 Nearly eight hundred years ago, the celebrated Japanese Zen master Dogen gave a remarkable sermon revealing his egalitarian attitude toward women, an attitude reflected in both his teachings and writings. With the publication of Receiving the Marrow, a collection of essays edited by Eido Frances Carney, eleven accomplished Zen women priests share their understanding of Dogen’s teachings, as well as their appreciation. In her introduction, Carney, the founding abbess and teacher at the Olympia Zen Center in Washington, lauds Soto Zen’s “egalitarian founder” for setting “the stage for women to come forward and stand as equals in a clerical world that had rejected them as full members of the institution.” Indeed, from his first monastery in Kyoto to his years at Eiheiji temple in the remote mountains, evidence suggests Dogen supported both nuns and female lay practitioners. This favorable attitude toward STEVEN HEINE is a professor of religion and the director of Asian studies at Florida International University. He is the editor of Dogen: Textual and Historical Studies and the author of the forthcoming book Like Cats and Dogs: Contesting the Mu Koan in Zen Buddhism, both from Oxford University Press.
