Book coverSwampland Flowers: The Letters and Lectures of Zen Master Ta Hui, translated by J. C. Cleary

The writings of the twelfth-century Chan Buddhist master Ta Hui Tsung Kao are testimony to the timelessness of Zen teaching. His letters, sermons, and lectures, often addressed to laypeople, are utterly simple—and utterly effective in helping us to see and let go of discursive thinking. If you’re inclined to think that, as a twenty-first-century person, you need a contemporary teacher to convey the buddhadharma to you, give Ta Hui a try. You’ll see that he conveyed it marvelously well seven centuries ago.
