Norman Waddell ☆ 4 Free read Zen Words for the Heart Hakuin's Commentary on the Heart Sutra Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Hakuin Zenji 1689 1769 was one of the most important of all Japanese Zen masters His commentary on the Heart Sutra is a Zen classic that reflects his dynamic teaching style Picked this up at a second hand store and simply could not stop reading without knowing where it would lead me So glad I kept going And now it s one I can revisit anytimeI still remember reading the final page that exact moment what I saw what I heard and where I was A kind of stillness and fullness of time yet fleeting gone forever I wanted to hang to it but the day took a turn and it never came back Perfect lesson I guessThe contents are made of wonderful tough stuff Bits of it are like poetry and science melded together three thousand worlds inside a foam fleck on the sea It stirs my curiosity and I marvel at each page both the history inside the teachings and the teachings themselves Yet at the same time I realise that the whole point of the book is not the words on the pages but the way I allow them to interact with my own being and to go beyond wordsA flash of insight occurred when focusing on No one gets dirty living in the world of men Not a clean face in all the Buddhas pure lands Like literally seeing a horizon appear from the page between the lines It was marvelous wonderfulThe ending words are so tender All through the book Hakuin practically throws rocks at you and then at the end he turns out to be so completely human and understanding I don t think I can come up with a book I know that is like this one
