Sitting in Oblivion outlines the history and intricacies of zuowang, an essential form of Daoist meditation. It divides into two parts. "Discussion" begins by placing the practice in the larger context of the phenomenology of meditation and Chinese religious history. It then discusses early forms, Tang developments, the Buddhist impact, and its role today. "Translation" presents eight core texts,all with ample annotation. Drawing on decades of Daoist scholarship and meditation experience, this book is the culmination of Kohn's extensive, path-breaking work. It greatly enhances our understanding of the complex methods and concepts involved in attaining Dao.
