    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)

    The Sixth Patriarch’s Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra Second Edition- Download Kindle Format $20.00

    “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. Heng Sure, MA, UC Berkeley; PhD, Graduate Theological Union Publication Date: August 27, 2014 1,300th (plus one year) anniversary of the passing of the Sixth Patriarch (713 AD) ISBN: 978-1-60103-069-6 eBook In English, Appendix: full sutra text in Chinese
