In this volume, The Buddhist Society presents Yoka Daishi's Realizing the Way, a T'ang Dynasty Chinese text known as Zhang Dao Ge, or Shodoka in Japanese.
This 12th century Japanese edition has been translated by the Venerable Myokyo-ni and accompanied throughout by her own commentary on the text.
The title, which is variously translated, is most commonly known as 'The Song of Enlightenment'.
With vivid imagery and striking turns of phrase, these verses weave in and out of the various Mahayana doctrines.
Each section of the Song is accompanied here by extensive and illuminating commentary.
