In the history of the Chinese Ch'an School,
the Northern School represented by Shen-hsiu
flourished for a long time in the areas around
Ch'ang-an and Lo-yang out in the late T'ang the
Southern School which had been founded by Huineng
spread rapidly all over the country while the
Northern School declined. In accordance with this
development,histories of the Ch'an School and
treatises dealing with meditation practice belong
mostly to the southern School. The Literature of the
Northern School vanished during the Sung Dynasty. In
the 1920's Chinese and Japanese scholars discovered
among the Tun-huang manuscripts a great number of
early Ch'an texts among which `Ching-Chueh's`
Leng-ch'ieh shih-tzu chi and Tu Fei's Ch'uan fa-pao
chi are the most important chronicles of the
Northern School. They enable us to understand the
early history of the Ch'an School and the main
meditation related ideas of the Northern School.

In the present paper the life of `Ching-chueh`
(683-?) is explored and the ideas behind his Heart
`Sutra` Commentary are analyzed. The said commentary
was discovered in 1935. His existence was made
public eight years later by Hsiany Ta. Now it is
kept at the Tun-huang District Museum.

`Ching-chueh's` family background and his
studies with Shen-hsiu,Hui-an,and `Hsuan-tse` are
critically researched. It was found that he wrote
the leng-ch'ieh shih-tzu chi on the `Ling-ch'uan`
Valley at Mt. T'ai-hang on the basis of `Hsuan-tse's`
leng-ch'ieh jen-fa chih. at the same Location,
`Ching-chueh` authored a one-fascicle commentary on
the Diamond `sutra` which is not extant any more. In
727,following an invitation,he wrote his Heart
`sutra` Commentary in Chin-chou.

The present writer believes that one can take
the thoughts expressed in the Heart `sutra` Commentary
as `Ching-chueh's` theories concerning Ch'an
meditation. Based on the `prajnaparamita` idea of
emptiness `Ching-chueh` negates thoroughly this world
and all concepts and verbal teachings assuming that
the highest form of knowledge is to reach "emptiness
without attainment" and from there to gain
transcendental wisdom. The present writer is of the
opinion that `Ching-chueh` employed the Madhyamaka
method of "non-duality" and held that "the very
nature of samsara is `nirvana` "wherefore one can
attain Buddhahood through practice in everyday life.
This reasoning is quite close to the theories of the
Southern School.

The complete text of the `sutra` Silna
Commentary following the appendix has been
critically edited on the basis of the Tun-huang
Museum manuscript which was compared to the Landon S
4556 manuscript and Yanagida's critical edition.
