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.

Dear Reader and Serious Meditator: Master Nan is not well known outside of Asia but he is an international treasure and guiding light. I have read his books that have been translated into English (5 total to date). This book provides many insights and interconnections with all kinds of different spiritual paths. The book is taken from a course that Master Nan gave to college students and his grandfatherly advice and wisdom pours out of the pages and baths one in the facts of various cultivation histories applying them to our challenges today. He points out a number of fundamental mistakes that other intellectuals have made in understanding the Diamond Sutra -- the Buddha's crowning sutra full of wisdom and insight for enjoying the spiritual trail. An excellent and magical book.
