This complete translation of the original collection of sermons, dialogues, and anecdotes of Huang Po, the illustrious Chinese master of the Tang Dynasty, allows the Western reader to gain an understanding of Zen from the original source, one of the key works in its teachings; it also offers deep and often startling insights into the rich treasures of Eastern thought. Nowhere is the use of paradox in Zen illustrated in the teaching of Huang Po, who shows how the experience of intuitive knowledge that reveals to a man what he is cannot be communicated by words. With the help of these paradoxes, beautifully and simply presented in this collection, Huang Po could set his disciples on the right path. It is in this fashion that the Zen master leads his listener into truth, often by a single phrase designed to destroy his particular demon of ignorance.

I don’t know much about Buddhism, but I know what I like. Huang Po is the man! Listen to this.

“I may express it thus – the way of the Buddhas flourishes in a mind utterly freed from conceptual thought process, while discrimination between this and that a legion of demons! Finally, remember that form first to last not even the smallest grain of anything is perceptible has ever existed or ever will exist.” P127

“There is absolutely NOTHING which can be attained.” P125

What a guy.
