About the Author
Master Nan is considered one of the greatest contemporary spiritual Masters. Born in China in 1917, Master Nan attained profound understanding of the Dharma in his twenties, a feat verified by several Ch'an and esoteric Buddhist Masters. He is the author of over 40 books that together have sold over 20 million copies in Chinese-speaking countries alone. Several of his books have already been translated into English and other languages. He is considered a foremost expert in Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and classic Chinese philosophy and history. Master Nan however is no scholar, and living in Hong Kong, he spends most of his time teaching informally to his students and participating actively in the rebuilding of culture in China. This work was translated by Hue En (Pia Giammasi), a long-time student of Master Nan. Hue En has used an informal and personable style that attempts to capture the beauty and the cadence of the original teaching material.

Oh yeah, this is supposed to be a review for the Diamond Sutra. The commentating in this book gave me a unique perspective to look at the Diamond Sutra from. Without the commentary, I wouldn't be able to understand the Sutra as much. Master Nan's wisdom is pronounced throughout the reading, and those that consider his words, will benefit greatly. There are interesting stories of his experiences that he tells which are also very entertaining. This book is definitely my favorite book of all time. It's such a pleasant read, and brings all this airy fairy spiritual striving down to Earth. The book is fun, intriguing, and jam packed with wisdom-definitely worth a read!
