sAn Introduction to Zen Training's is a translation of Sanzen Nyumon, a key text for students of Zen by Omori Sogen, one of the foremost Zen teachers of the twentieth century. Ornori Roshi provides a comprehensive introduction to the goals and practice of zazen, the meditation practice at the foundation of Zen training. Students will find his discussion of the physical dimensions of zazen -including breathing, pain, posture, and drowsiness- as valuable as the discussion of the context in which Zen training takes on meaning. The book also addresses many of the common issues faced by students of Zen, ranging from how long they should sit at a time to how to maintain their concentration when not sitting. It concludes with Omori Roshi'ss commentaries on two fundamental Zen texts: Hakuin'ss Song of Zazen and the traditional Ten Ox Herding Pictures. Having undergone rigorous training in Zen, swordsmanship, and calligraphy from an early age, Omori Sogen was a sword teacher, and ultimately an advisor to the Japanese Cabinet prior to World War II. Following the war, he became a priest and continued his work as a teacher of Zen, swordsmanship, and calligraphy. His Zen teaching was remarkable for its emphasis on both the martial vigor of the great Zen teachers of the samurai era as well as the refinement and depth found in the hest Zen calligraphers. During this period he wrote extensively, publishing over twenty books, and served as a court magistrate. He established the International Zen Dojo in Hawaii and founded Daihonzan Chozen ji in Honolulu the first headquarters temple of Rinzai Zen established outside of Japan under canon law.
