Lions Roar : January 2019
tennis instructor, he reads the collec- tion of Zen books she’s left behind. Quickly hooked, Bopper then sees an advertisement for a “rigorous and authentic” Zen retreat and decides, since he’s made no progress practicing on his own, to join in. Bopper’s Progress (Wundor Editions) details a full-on day of training, written using natural language and with characters who feel familiar and real, which reminds us how accessible Zen really is. Author John Manderino puts us right there with Bopper; we feel for him and wish for his progress to be amazing and swift. This lovely introduction to the idea of Zen practice may have you seek- ing out a retreat to attend yourself. LIZA MATTHEWS Art Director and Associate Editor of Lion’s Roar The Complete Cold Mountain: Poems of the Legendary Hermit Hanshan OUR STAFF PICKS KOUN FRANZ Deputy Editor of Buddhadharma If you’re interested in Dogen but don’t know where to start, start with Shinshu Rober ts’ Being Time (Wisdom Publica- tions); if you’re a longtime practitio- ner wanting to finally wrap your head around one of Dogen’s (and Buddhism’s) most difficult ideas, the recommendation is the same. Roberts expertly guides us through these subtle teachings on time and existence—okay, everything—laying out not only what Dogen said but also the truth of it, for us, in this moment. One can only hope that this book signals a new age of commentaries from a new generation of teachers. (And may they all be this good!) CONNIE JONES Administrative Assistant Bopper’s life just blew up. After his girl- friend leaves him for a Zen-practicing (Shambhala Publications) is a great book to take if stranded on a desert island. With lots of wisdom and humor, it describes the joy and sadness of solitude, the beauty of nature, and the possibility of contentment in desolate circumstances. The book was translated by the Zen scholar, translator, and art- ist Kazuaki Tanahashi and the poet and Zen teacher Peter Levitt, and it includes a chapter by Tanahashi on the historic background of Hanshan. Little is known about this legendary hermit, and Tanahashi suggests that his poems may in fact have been written by three poets. The challenge of translation must be formidable when translating poems written in East Asian ideograms, but the translations in this book are vivid and wonderful. They jump off the page with a liveliness that transcends time and culture, resonating with our own sense of solitude. ♦ Sterling and brass rings designed for mindful moments.
