(p.15) 1 Textual Genealogies of Dōgen

William M. Bodiford

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces, surveys, and evaluates the main texts by Dōgen, including the major editions of the Shōbōgenzō, in order to correct many current misimpressions. It examines in fine detail the multiple writings attributed to Dōgen and the various extant versions. A special focus is placed on the several editions and redactions of the Shōbōgenzō that contain different numbers of fascicles, a topic that has received relatively little discussion in Western studies. It shows how the 12-fascicle, 28-fascicle, 60-fascicle, 75-fascicle, and 95-fascicle Shōbōgenzō texts, among others, were formed, and which of the editions are reliable. It also demonstrates the relation between the Kana Shōbōgenzō and Mana Shōbōgenzō texts. It assesses the authenticity or corruption, as well as the scholarly relevance of each version for conducting research on Dōgen's writings. In addition, the chapter surveys the versions of the Shōbōgenzō zuimonki, Eihei kōroku, Eihei shingi, along with other key texts by Dōgen.

Keywords:   Buddhist texts, Kana Shōbōgenzō, Mana Shōbōgenzō, Eihei kōroku, Eihei shingi
