Description Japanese Zen master Dogen ? ? (1200—1253), founder of the Soto Zen school, was one of the first Buddhist teachers in Japan to produce original philosophical texts in a collection called Treasury of the True Dharma Eye, Shobogenzo ?? ? ? in Japanese. Essays in this collection are, in addition to their timeless thought content, exceptional in that they were written in a combination of contemporary Japanese and Chinese, and not strictly in literary Chinese, as was the custom not only at the time but also for several centuries to come. The essay "Being-Time", the first Slovak translation of which, together with the accompanying explanation, is provided by the following study, is one of the most complicated, but also the most frequently studied and annotated texts by Dogen. In an effort to bring Dogen's words and ideas closer to contemporary reader, the present translation of the text is enriched with explanation of some Buddhist terms and concepts that illustrate the richness and depth of Dogen's Zen.
