Description

The Heart Sutra is familiar to Buddhists everywhere. What makes this volume special are the standless verses composed by the late Venerable Master Hsuan Hua to annotate each section of the sutra. The verses take their name from the line of the verse of the Sixth Patriarch Hui Neng that say, "The bright mirror has no stand." These standless verses, filled with the flavor of Chan meditation, delve into the deeper meanings of the sutra. The commentary of the Master, which covers both the sutra text proper and the standless verses, is rich in classic definitions of terms and concepts and sprinkled with stories and illustrations that both appeal to the people and the world of today and tomorrow.

  • The Sixth Patriarch’s Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra Second Edition

    The Sixth Patriarch’s Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra Second Edition $30.00

    “The knowledge and vision of the Buddha is just your own mind; there is no other Buddha.” Such is the teaching of Master Huineng (638–713), the most important and most revered figure in the Chan (Zen) School of East Asian Buddhism. Huineng left no written record, but his students compiled accounts of his public lectures and one-on-one exchanges, together with the dramatic story of his life. The resulting volume is The Sixth Patriarch's Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra, "sixth" because Master Huineng is counted as the sixth generation of patriarchal succession from the first Chan patriarch Bodhidharma. Master Huineng's Platform Sutra is so highly regarded in Buddhist Asia that it is called a Sutra, a term otherwise reserved for texts spoken by the Buddha himself Editors: Martin Verhoeven, PhD, University of Wisconsin- Madison Rev.
