"One pleasure of discovering the lives and teachings of the rare
women we find in the history of Buddhism is seeing how they take up
the tragedies in their lives and transform them. Because their

great gift. To sit with the poems of Rengetsu is to allow a teacher
into the depth of one's mind."-Bonnie Myotai Treace, spiritual
director of the Zen Center of New York At 33, Otagaki Nobu
renounced a world that had visited great tragedy upon her (after
losing two husbands and two infant children) and was ordained a
Buddhist nun, taking the name Rengetsu (Lotus Moon). Lotus Moon is
a selection of her finest poetry presented in John Stevens' elegant
translations and includes illustrations of her artwork and pottery.
