The universe is alive with a dynamic energy that creates and sustains our lives. It surrounds us, flows through us, and is available to us in every moment. Spiritual practice, according to Dainin Katagiri Roshi, is about aligning ourselves with this ever-present life force—sometimes referred to as chi, qi, or ki. This collection, edited from his talks, focuses on cosmic energy as it relates to all aspects of Zen practice. With references to classic texts and personal stories that bring the teachings to life, The Light That Shines through Infinity is also a powerful antidote to the notion that practice is in some way about transcending the world around us. It is in fact about nothing other than relating to it compassionately and whole-heartedly.

"Katagiri Roshi’s great wisdom shines through every word of this marvelous book." —Joan Halifax, author of Being with Dying and The Fruitful Darkness

"I absolutely love this book. It brilliantly edits the Zen teacher Dainin Katagiri’s talks into an invitation and guide for our practice. It moves seamlessly from introductory instructions to the deepest aspects of the Zen way. This book is likely destined to be an American Zen classic. Katagiri Roshi was one of the founding teachers of our North American Zen. His insights and style have shaped who we are. His wisdom and compassion shine through every page of this book. I cannot recommend it highly enough. This book presents the essence of our Zen way." —James Ishmael Ford, author of Zen Master Who? and If You’re Lucky, Your Heart Will Break
