No Tabi: Gendaijin Ga Kataru Zen No Satori No Taikendan
Yasutani, Ryoko, ed. (Tokyo:
Volume 1- 1959; Volume 2-1962.)
Two volumes of accounts
of the Zen enlightenment experience were produced by
the disciples from the school of Zen master Ryoko Yasutani
(d. 1973). Yasutani traveled throughout Japan for many
years giving Zen courses. The two volumes contain thirty
accounts, some rather extensive. Most are from Buddhist
laymen and laywomen who reached the goal of enlightenment
under Master Yasutani's direction.
Unfortunately, these volumes
have not yet been translated into English nor is there
an English summary of the experiences.
