Omori Sogen (1904-1994) was one of the foremost Rinzai Zen teachers of the 20th centry, his life spanning the years from the 1900's when teachers schooled in the samurai tradition were still alive, to th late 1990's when japan's international roles in business, technology, design and diplomacy were well establiched. As an expert in Kendo (the Way of the sword) and Shodo (the Way of the brush), and as a political activist, scholar and university president, his approach to teaching was totally different from other Zen masters. His Zen emphasized the vitality of the martial arts, the spiritual depth of Zen and the refinement of the fine arts. Although Omori Sogen wrote extensively throughout his life, much of his writings have been lost and little other than'An Introduction to Zen Training' has been translated into English. ... from the Jacket copy.
