Did Dogen Go to China?

This chapter explores the late stage of Dōgen’s career. This stage is divided into two sub-periods. The first is the early late period (1246-1248) extending from the mission to Kamakura until Dōgen’s return to Eiheiji. The phase beginning with the return from Kamakura was dynamic, marked by the composition of at least three major writings. These include jōdō and shōsan sermons collected in Eihei kōroku; the majority of the 12-Shōbōgenzō fascicles; and the Hōkyōki. Poetry (both waka and kanshi) and other short works were also composed during this period. These writings collectively express what seems to be a new attitude toward the doctrine of karmic causality in its various ramifications.

Keywords:   12-Shōbōgenzō, Eiheiji, Eihei kōroku, Hung-chih, Hōkyōki, Kamakura, Karmic causality
