In this site we are happy to present two important essays of Keizan, translated by Prof. Masunaga Reiho. Zazenyojinki and Sankon-Zazen-Setsu.
Keizan wrote a very interesting book titled Denkoroku - the record of transmitting the light. It is a Must book, for all Zen and Buddhism trainees. Combining History, teaching, stories and deep knowledge. The book was translated remarkably by Francis H. Cook. (And also by the great translator - Thomas Cleary) Keizan brings in 53 chapters the unbreakable chain of 53 Zen teachers, transmitting generation after generation the true law. Starting with Sakyamuni Buddha, Mahakasyapa, and Ananda through Nagarjuna, Bodhidharma, Hui-neng, Nyojo, Dogen and Ejo.
