Chan (Zen) meditation is known for being an immediate teaching pointing directly at the mind. Although the tradition itself emphasizes the personal experience of realization, the Chan scriptures provide essential insights and instructions on the path.
The Sixth Patriarch Sutra encapsulates the life story and teachings of an enlightened monk, known as the Sixth Patriarch, or Great Master Hui Neng. The text is straight and true while also being lively and engaging.
Dr. Martin Verhoeven has extensive experience with the text as he recently translated the text which has now been published. The class will be using this new translation.
Don't miss the first class as this semester will be the start of the lecture series.
