AbstractThe collection of his talks is the only Zen record of its kind to be honoured with the term "scripture". Hui-Neng (638-713) is perhaps the most beloved and respected figure in Zen Buddhism. An illiterate woodcutter who attained enlightenment in a flash, he became the 6th Patriarch of Chinese Zen,and is regarded as the founder of the "Sudden Enlightenment" school. He is the supreme exemplar of the fact that neither education nor social background has any bearing on the attainment of enlightenment.
This collection of his talks, also known as the Platform or Altar Sutra, is the only Zen record of its kind to be generally honored with the appellation sutra, or scripture. The Sutra of Hui Neng is here accompanied by Hui Neng's verse-by-verse commentary on the Diamond Sutra—in its very first published English translation ever.
