This work explores how Soto monks between the 13th and 16th centuries developed
new forms of monastic organization and Zen instructions and new
applications for Zen rituals within lay life; how these innovations
helped shape rural society; and how remnants of them remain in the
modern Soto school.
William M. Bodiford is Professor of Buddhist Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
