New PDF release: Shobogenzo Band 4: Die Schatzkammer des wahren Dharma-Auges,

By Meister Dogen,G W Nishijima,Gabriele Linnebach

Meister Dōgens Shōbōgenzō ist eine der wichtigsten und tiefgründigsten Schriften des Zen und sicher auch des gesamten Buddhismus. Zudem ist es zweifellos das philosophisch am besten begründete Werk, das je von einem Zen-Meister geschrieben wurde. Es wurde von Meister Dōgen in der Zeit von 1231 bis 1253 erarbeitet und ist die Aufzeichnung seiner tiefen Erfahrung und deren sprachliche Formulierung. Diese profunden und vielschichtigen Lehrreden, die Dōgen seinen Schülern — Mönchen, Nonnen und Laien — als philosophisch fundierte und konkrete Anleitungen vorgetragen hat, waren leider nach seinem Tod speedy ganz in Vergessenheit geraten. Sie waren lange nur in einem kleinen Kreis von Experten der Sōtō-Schule bekannt und wurden dort studiert. Erst seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts wurde der unerschöpfliche Wert dieses großen Werks wiederentdeckt. In den letzten Jahren nahm das Interesse an Dōgens Shōbōgenzō in weiten Kreisen zu, sodass wir hoffen, mit dieser Übersetzung dem dringenden Bedarf nach einer vollständigen, verlässlichen und möglichst verständlichen Fassung nachzukommen.

Die Ausgabe beruht auf der japanischen Ausgabe des Originaltextes von Zen-Meister Gudō Wafu Nishijima-Rōshi und wurde in enger Zusammenarbeit mit ihm von Ritsunen Gabriele Linnebach übersetzt. In dieser Übersetzung ging es uns einerseits darum, den japanischen Quellentext inhaltlich so genau wie möglich zu übersetzen und andererseits diesen textual content trotz seiner Schwierigkeit in eine möglichst klare und verständliche Sprache zu bringen. Dies folgt dem Anliegen Dōgens, Zen einer breiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen und sich nicht auf eine Gruppe Gelehrter zu beschränken. Eine Fülle von Anmerkungen, die den textual content erläutern, soll diesem Anspruch in umfassender Weise gerecht werden.
