complete text of the shobogenzo online

All 1,100 pages of Dogen’s brilliant, beautiful, opaque text Shobogenzo are now available online for free.I can’t claim to have read the whole thing, though I know a guy who has and a guy that’s trying for it, but I can personally recommend Genjo Koan (and Jundo’s talks on it).

Rejoice, homies.

    Thank you for such a wonderful book. So much time I was looking for something similar, Now I feel I it was precisely what I was looking for.

    Awesome. After reading of Dogen and that the Shobogenzo was a writing by him, now finding this text online — google had turned up your blog page, here, after a certain search — for all it’s worth, it also may be most helpful in one person’s studies of Buddhism & life all that.

    Peace out (?)
