AbstractThis "Universal Recommendation of Zazen" by Dogen,the founder of the Japanese Soto School of Zen,was written in 1227 immediately after Dogen's return to Japan from China. It elucidates the true significance of zazen and emphasizes the importance of its practice.

Dogen considered zazen not to be a means for attaining enlightenment but to be in fact the whole of Buddhist practice,and maintained that practising zazen be equivalent to the very state of a buddha. The present work was written in order to spread his ideas on zazen in their undiluted form,and formed the basis for the establishment of the Soto School. It is a short work,consisting of a mere 786 characters, but its contents are not necessarily of a readily understandable nature.
