From Chinese Chan to Japanese Zen investigates the remarkable century that lasted from 1225 to 1325, during which the transformation of the Chinese Chan school of Buddhism into the Japanese Zen sect was successfully completed. Steven Heine reveals how this school of Buddhism, which started
half a millennium earlier as a mystical utopian cult for reclusive monks, gained a broad following among influential lay followers in both China and Japan.
Steven Heine is the Director of the Institute for Asian Studies and a Professor of Religious Studies at Florida International University. He has published thirty books on Zen and East Asian religion and society.
