Abstract: Japanese Buddhist history since the Tokugawa period is neglected by Japanese and Western scholarship. Despite the apparent popularity of “Zen,” studies on the Tokugawa Rinzai school are particularly scarce. Moreover, access to the vast majority of sources remains limited to those who can read classical texts in their original language. The translation of Tōrei Enji’s text constitutes my response to this lack of sources. It provides the first integral translation of Tōrei’s major work, The Treatise on the Inexhaustible Lamp of Zen, and enables us to get a firsthand account of meditation practice in the tradition that has shaped today’s monastic life. Tōrei’s treatise details the whole process of meditation, which remains almost identical to the curriculum of today’s monks.
