Lectures on the Ten Oxherding Pictures
A favorite with early Zen practitioners in China and Japan, The Ten Oxherding Pictures uses the ox as a symbol for Buddha nature, and the taming of the ox as a symbol for the practice of realizing that nature. These are the lectures on the text given by Yamada Mumon Roshi (1900-1988) to his monks while master of Shofuku-ji Monastery.
