Inoue Gien Goroku on Adjunct the Lecture of Hear Sutras; Collected Sayings of Gien Inoue Roshi was published in 2014 by Tetsugen Inoue Roshi and Abbot Tesshu Inoue of Ryusenji. It was compiled from the talks left behind by Gien Inoue Roshi, with 103 headings representing the essence of Zen.
Gien Inoue Roshi teaches us to learn from the activities of our own body and mind, and to learn from the functions of the six organs: the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. In this book, there are concrete points to learn from actual daily activities.
The Heart Sutra was written by Gien Roshi when he was in his sixties, and it is a powerful and rhythmic discourse.
Jinen Nagai Roshi has been using this book to teach the Dharma. As an English-speaking master, he is visited by Zen practitioners from overseas.
After Jinen Roshi’s missionary trip to Australia in 2017, I began to translate the text into English with the advice of Jinen Roshi.
In translating, I came across many difficult Zen terms. I asked Kando Inoue Roshi, the fifth son of Master Gien, to teach me. I have inserted them as notes.
I hope that this translation will be useful to Zen students abroad.
I am grateful to Jinen Nagai Roshi for his guidance in the translation and for using my translation in his Dharma talks.
I would also like to thank Kando Inoue Roshi for his guidance.
