Do Zen Monks/Hermits have a 'specific' reading study ? (like The Pāli Canon for Theravada)
What would a Zen Hermit study? (like the ones from the documentary ''AMONGST WHITE CLOUDS'')
The documentary is about real zen hermits living in the mountains.
They say that their practice is to meditate, live simply and study (then it shows a huge book of writings)
What is the study of a Zen Monk?
For example, what would Dogen have studied before he wrote his own shobogenzo
(I have many many books on ZEN. But alot of our modern day books are from 'practitioners, authors' who discuss what they think zen is..
But are there any real zen studies out there?
