Posted on | December 13, 2010 | 2 Comments

The Sixth Patriarch’s Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra free Buddhist ebookThe Sixth Patriarch’s Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra is the fundamental text of Ch’an Buddhism. It relates the life and teachings of Master Hui Neng, the Great Master the Sixth Patriarch, as set down by one of his disciples. During the seventh and eighth centuries under the T’ang Dynasty, Master Hui Neng taught the doctrines of no-thought, Zen and of sudden enlightenment, which, as expounded in this text, continue to be the heart of Ch’an wherever it is practiced. As such, these are the only teachings of a Chinese high monk which are regarded by Buddhists as a Sutra, that is, as a sacred text equal to those compiled by the earlier South Asian masters.
