Acequias & Gates : Miscellaneous Koans and Writings on Miscellaneous Koans
This book contains two zen koan collections and a collection of essays by Joan Sutherland on keeping company with koans. The first collection in the Gates is the Miscellaneous Koans, part of the formal Pacific Zen School curriculum for koan study. Every koan school has its own unique collection of koans, and this is ours. The second is Awakened Life Koans, compiled by Joan Sutherland. Together they provide a strong grounding in the koan tradition as we've come to understand it. These collections are, vitally, receptacles for koans we're gathering from sources beyond East Asia, and for koans that begin to fill in some pretty important gaps, like the presence of women and the concerns of householders' lives. The gift of reknowned painter Ciel Bergman's images elevates things to another level altogether.
