On Master Dogen’s “Uji” (“The Time-Being”)

Gendo Roshi‘s talk on Eihei Dogen Zenji’s essay “Uji” or “The Time-Being” appears below.

“Uji,” composed in 1240, is one fascicle of master Dogen’s extended work, The Kana Shobogenzo or Treasury of the True Dharma Eye.  You may read a translation of “Uji” here.

Gendo Roshi encourages the submission of comments here or on Great Wave’s YouTube channel.
