I've always been a fan of his Sudden Awakening, Gradual Cultivation.

What does your teaser, "Who sent me this?", actually mean?

He sent it to himself in a previous life.

Excellent!

That and other similarly excellent talks and writings on Zen meditation by Chan and Soto Zen Masters can be found in Minding Mind translated by Thomas Cleary.

Well, it's quite interesting all the way around. Did anyone else notice he calls zazen "calming and insight" besides me?

Yep yep.

No doubt about it. There can't be any dropping away of body and mind if its not the same meditation. The way shikantaza is sometimes taught, dropping away of body and mind, and having no thought, is considered to be merely hyperbole. It isn't.
