Through his numerous descendants, his influence is now felt worldwide, with his “Song of Zazen&; chanted daily in temples around the globe.

Norman Waddell has spent decades reading and translating Hakuin's vast writings. He has published several previous selections, all leading to his work on this monumental gathering, the Keiso Dokuzui, little known in Japan and never before translated into any foreign language.
