The Wholehearted Way

A Translation of Eihei Dagen's Bendowa, With Commentary by Kosho Uchiyama Roshi


The Wholehearted Way is a translation of Eihei Dogen's Bendowa, one of the primary texts on Zen practice.

Bendowa, or A Talk on the Wholehearted Practice of the Way, was written in 1231 A.D. and expresses Dogen's teaching of the essential meaning of zazen (seated meditation) and its practice.
