Ven. Guo Cheen's Works

Postby Astus » Fri Sep 02, 2011 9:32 pm

1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

I know her quite well from my contacts with CTTB and her forum. It's wonderful to see another fellow translator publish! I'm just published so I know how much work it takes to get it all together! Wonderful! Thanks for the links!
Practice dilligently, read sutras/suttas widely, seek out monastic Sangha and ask for dharma teachings, practice dana regularly, volunteer daily to do as much good as you can for others in need, be active not passive in your Buddhist life and your light will shine bright.

If one is not on Facebook and is willing to pay for Scribd downloads, then very good.
A man should not judge a man, for he harms himself very quickly, that man who judges a man. Only I or someone like me can assess a man.

What's the story with the website Scribd? Does one have to pay?

I had the good fortune of meeting Ven. Guo Cheen on a chance encounter maybe two years ago. I found her to be extraordinarly helpful and willing to answer some rather specific questions about particular Chinese Buddhist texts. She gave me one of her books in hardcover, which I appreciated. I would look forward to further discussion of her work.
