BOOK REVIEWS Treasury of the True Dharma Eye: Zen Master Dogen's Shobo Genzo. Edited by Kazuaki Tanahashi. Boston: Shambhala, 2011. 2 vols. Pp. 1,280. Hardcover $100.00, isbn 978-1-590-30935-3. Reviewed by Eitan Bolokan Tel-Aviv University firstname.lastname@example.org Kazuaki Tanahashi is one of the most influential translators of Zen Master Dgen in recent decades. The scope and variety of his translations are as impressive as the manner in which he brings Zen, and especially Dgen's Zen, into modern English, serving as a rare bridge between cultures, ancient times, and modern society. Treasury of the True Dharma Eye: Zen Master Dogen's Shobo Genzo, a landmark translation of Dgen's magnum opus Shbgenz, is the fourth project led by Tanahashi and sponsored by the San Francisco Zen Center, following Moon in a Dewdrop (New York: North Point, 1995), Enlightenment Unfolds (Boston: Shambhala, 2000), and Beyond Thinking (Boston: Shambhala, 2004), all of which provide selections from the Shbgenz as well as other works by Dgen. Treasury of the True Dharma Eye consists of two volumes. The first opens with important introductory remarks by the editor, and then presents the translations in chronological order, as dated by Dgen, starting with his return from China in 1227
