Abstract:

"Impermanence is time itself, being itselfyet time and being are not at all as we imagine them to be. To really understand and fully embrace this point is to live in a radically different worlda world of awakening, inclusion, and love. Zen Master Dogen frames the teaching on impermanence explicitly as a teaching about timeand all of Dogens profoundly poetic teachings flow from his seminal understanding of time, as expressed in Uji (Being-Time), the famousand famously difficultessay in his masterwork, Shobogenzo. In Uji, Dogen teaches that time itself, being itself, is luminous awakening. It is all-inclusive, all-elusive, ultimately healing, and eternal. In this book, Shinshu Roberts does full justice, as does no other book I know of, to Dogens words. She offers interpretation of Uji only after careful consideration and marshaling of many sourcesand offers simple everyday examples to illustrate points that seem at first abstruse. If this text causes you to doubt your most cherished concepts about your life, it will have done its work." from the Foreword by Norman Fischer.
