Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Combined with the very informative introduction this book gives great insight into the Hung-Chou School of Ch'an and its most beloved Ancestor. In addition, we have translations from many of Ma Tsu's friends and disciples (nice since Ma Tsu's record is very short compared to other records)and this really makes the difference in this presentation! Thanks to Cheng Chien Bhikshu we now have a fine translation of a Grand Master of Ch'an to go along side the likes of Huang Po ('...traditionally regarded as Ma Tsu's grandson in the Dharma...') and Lin-chi (Huang Po's most famous disciple thru whom this school has been remembered to this day). I am not surprised at the lack of reviews for this book, most of the excitement about Ch'an centers on its Japanese cousin (Zen) and the 'Living Masters' who have made their way to America. However, for those interested in the roots of 'Zen' and the answers to some of the questions surrounding modern Zen, look no further. (Not overly academic, nicely bound, hard to find used.)
