Awareness 3

This is one of my favourite books. And I thoroughly recommend it.
It is a translation of a teaching on life based on instructions to head cooks in monasteries. Eihei Dogen is a very famous Zen master. The commentary is by Kosho Uchiyama, who had been a teacher of one of my students in Japan. I met Thomas Wright, the translator, while spending a day at a lovely temple in Kyoto.
Now this is a true story.  The following typo appears on page 4 ...

"Do not be absent-midned in your activities..."
