THE ORAL TRANSMISSIONS OF THE 52 SOTO ZEN ANCESTORS: Shakyamuni
Buddha founded the path of the successive 52 Soto Zen Ancestors
when he awakened to the Way. The transmissions of the teachings to
the 52 Ancestors in Zen Buddhist Tradition were never meant to
reach the eyes of laymen. 'The Denkoroku: The Record of the
Transmission of Light' was originally written only for the eyes of
Zen monks. Shasta Abbey's late Abbess, Jiyu Kennett, who translated
the text into English often said that the long sentences used in
Zen would likely annoy American readers. But she made the decision
to share some of the deeper teachings of Zen with the lay public
even if they were unable to penetrate into the deeper meaning of
the words. This book gives you an overview and insight into a
subject otherwise only understood through lengthy study. (For more
