Description About the author
 
Hui-neng (638–713) is perhaps the most beloved and respected figure in Zen
Buddhism. An illiterate woodcutter who attained enlightenment in a flash, he
became the Sixth Patriarch of Chinese Zen, and is regarded as the founder of
the "Sudden Enlightenment" school. He is the supreme exemplar of the fact that
neither education nor social background has any bearing on the attainment of
enlightenment. This collection of his talks, also known as the Platform or
Altar Sutra, is the only Zen record of its kind to be generally honored with
the appellation sutra, or scripture.


The Sutra of Hui-neng is here accompanied by Hui-neng's verse-by-verse commentary
on the Diamond Sutra—in its very first published English translation ever.
