Another modern translation of Bendowa

Dogen translations which are actually readable seem to be getting more popular. Now Michael Eido Luetchford (picture), whom I had the pleasure of meeting last week, has presented us with his highly accessible version of Bendowa, subtitled “How to Pursue the Truth”.

Luetchford is also the author of Between Heaven and Earth: From Nagarjuna to Dogen, a translation of Nagarjuna’s Mulamadhyamakakarika. He has done a contemporary translation of Uji, which he calls “Being-Present”, as well.
