White Wind Zen Community

A Community practising and teaching Dogen’s Zen since 1985


A new translation by Ven. Anzan Hoshin roshi and Ven. Yasuda Joshu Dainen roshi, over thirty years in the making, of Eihei Dogen zenji's "Bendowa: A Talk on Exerting the Way" is now available as an ebook in PDF format for free download from the web site. 

The Roshi has made it available under a Creative Commons license so everyone is free to copy and distribute it as long as it is not for commercial purposes, proper attribution is maintained, and the text is unaltered. 

This text is the basis of the Roshi's current teisho series, begun during the last Rohatsu O-sesshin, "Drawn In, Moving Forth: Commentaries on Eihei Dogen zenji's Bendowa: A Talk on Exerting the Way."
