Review Mud and Water - Wadeigassui - is the only comprehensive record of the dharma talks of the fourteenth-century Zen master Bassui. The talks, recorded by one of his disciples, were written in the colloquial Japanese of the time, since Bassui's followers included not only monks and nuns but also many lay people.
