    Due the difficult nature of Dogen's Shobogenzo it is recommended to go slowly, to digest it with calm, chapter by chapter

    I've read a fair bit of Dogen before, but it's good to go through this chapter by chapter and linger over those needing more close reading and reflection. Chapter 10 on morality could take a lifetime, I think.

    I think for anyone who's not familiar with Dogen and Shobogenzo, it would be a good idea to read the translator's introduction first, before beginning Volume 1.
