    Spring Sun, Lotus Flower Quotes from the Teachings of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua This collection of seemingly simple sayings by Buddhist Master Hsuan Hua really contains profound meaning. As his disciple Martin Verhoeven says in the introduction, “America in the late 20th century is awash with a staggering variety of Buddhisms .—all purporting to be genuine, orthodox, the “real teaching” . . . we in America find both teachings and teachers arriving practically on our doorsteps. Since the 1890s and especially since World War II, Buddhism and Buddhist masters have clearly set the Dharma on a new course: from East to West, from Asia to America. This fragile transfer of ancient wisdom to the New World, depends for its success on transplanting not simply the scriptures, but transmitting the “living tradition.” Only on the strength and inspiration of living examples of Buddhism does the Dharma take root in fresh soil and grow in new hearts. Such an exemplar was Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. And such was the scope of his vow: to bring the Dharma to America. It was this living example of a great soul “manifesting a body to speak the Dharma,” that made Buddhism come alive for me.” ISBN 978-1-60103-044-3 (ebook)
