    schema:reviewBody ""Omori Sogen (1904-1994) was one of the foremost Rinzai Zen teachers of the 20th century, his life spanning the years from the 1900s when teachers schooled in the samurai tradition were still alive, to the late 1990s when Japan's international roles in business, technology, design and diplomacy were well established. As an expert in Kendo (the Way of the sword) and Shodo (the Way of the brush), and as a political activist, scholar and university president, his approach to teaching was totally different from other Zen masters. His Zen emphasized the vitality of the martial arts, the spiritual depth of Zen and the refinement of fine arts."--BOOK JACKET. "By telling the story of his life, much of it in his own words, the first half of this biography illustrates how a life of training in the Way can include broad service and engagement with all facets of life."--Jacket." ;
