Thank you kindly for your replies,
I'm going to have to track down a hard copy of the Gatha's, very inspiring stuff. While searching for some Ryokan I stumbled upon some of Dogen's poetry, which was simply amazing, I've got a feeling my book collection is going to be growing a fair bit! Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to reply.
