The Diamond Sutra Book Excerpt:

"Zen Buddhism is often said to be a practice of "mind-to-mind transmission" without reliance on texts - in fact, some great teachers forbid their students to read or write. But Buddhism has also inspired and accumulated some of the greatest philosophical texts of any religion. Two works lie at the center of Zen: The Heart Sutra, which monks recite all over the world, and The Diamond Sutra, which teaches the "perfection of wisdom" and cuts through all obstacles on the path of practice. It is perhaps the most studied of all the sutras, and by one count more than twenty thousand commentaries are noted." "Red Pine, as he begins his preface, explains: "The Diamond may look like a book, but it's really the body of the Buddha. It's also your body, my body, all possible bodies. But it's a body with nothing inside and nothing outside. It doesn't exist in space or time. Nor it is a construct of the mind. It's no mind. And yet because it's no mind, it has room for compassion. This book is the offering of no mind, born of compassion for all suffering beings. Of all the sutras that teach this teaching, this is the diamond. It cuts through all delusions, illuminates what is real, and cannot be destroyed. It is the path on which all buddhas stand and walk. And to read it is to stand and walk with buddhas."" "Red Pine, the translator and Buddhist scholar, has worked with this text for many years. He has consulted dozens of commentaries, in Chinese and in Sanskrit, to offer this brilliant new translation together with extensive commentary intended to present this sacred text in a new light. The result is a work of inspiration and guidance, a text of spiritual practice for all seekers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

The Diamond Sutra Book Excerpt:

Zen Buddhism is often said to be a practice of mind–to–mind transmission without reliance on texts ––in fact, some great teachers forbid their students to read or write. But Buddhism has also inspired some of the greatest philosophical writings of any religion, and two such works lie at the center of Zen: The Heart Sutra, which monks recite all over the world, and The Diamond Sutra, said to contain answers to all questions of delusion and dualism. This is the Buddhist teaching on the perfection of wisdom and cuts through all obstacles on the path of practice. As Red Pine explains: The Diamond Sutra may look like a book, but it's really the body of the Buddha. It's also your body, my body, all possible bodies. But it's a body with nothing inside and nothing outside. It doesn't exist in space or time. Nor is it a construct of the mind. It's no mind. And yet because it's no mind, it has room for compassion. This book is the offering of no mind, born of compassion for all suffering beings. Of all the sutras that teach this teaching, this is the diamond.

The Diamond Sutra and The Sutra of Hui neng Book Excerpt:

The Diamond Sutra, composed in India in the fourth century CE, is one of the most treasured works of Buddhist literature and is the oldest existing printed book in the world. It is known as the Diamond Sutra because its teachings are said to be like diamonds that cut away all dualistic thought, releasing one from the attachment to objects and bringing one to the further shore of enlightenment. The format of this important sutra is presented as a conversation between the Buddha and one of his disciples. The Sutra of Hui-neng, also known as the Platform Sutra, contains the autobiography of a pivotal figure in Zen history and some of the most profound passages of Zen literature. Hui-neng (638–713) was the sixth patriarch of Zen in China, but is often regarded as the true father of the Zen tradition. He was a poor, illiterate woodcutter who is said to have attained enlightenment upon hearing a recitation of the Diamond Sutra. Together, these two scriptures present the central teaching of the Zen Buddhist tradition and are essential reading for all students of Buddhism.

The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusion Book Excerpt:

The Diamond Sutra, a mainstay of the Mahayana tradition, has fascinated Buddhists for centuries because of its insights into dualism and illusion: the "diamond" can cut through any obstacle on the road to enlightenment. In the Diamond Sutra, the Buddha responds to a disciple's question about how to become a Buddha. The Diamond that Cuts Through Illusion presents a dialogue between the Buddha and his disciple, Subhuti, which illuminates how our minds construct limited categories of thought. The answer: we must move beyond personal enlightenment to follow the path of the Bodhisattvas, fully enlightened beings who postpone Nirvana in order to alleviate the suffering of others. It offers us alternative ways to look at the world in its wholeness so we can encounter a deeper reality; develop reverence for the environment and more harmonious communities, families, and relationships; and act in the world skillfully and effectively. This revised edition includes Thich Nhat Hanh’s translation of the Sutra from the Chinese and, in his commentaries, his own diamond sharp insight, including new work on the environmental implications of the Diamond Sutra. A beautiful edition of one of Buddhism's central texts.

The Diamond Sutra Book Excerpt:

Written over 25 centuries ago, "The Diamond Sutra", like many sutras, begins with the famous phrase 'Thus have I heard'. In this sutra the Buddha has finished his daily walk with the monks to gather offerings of food, and sits down to rest. One of the more senior monks, Subhuti, comes forth and asks the Buddha a question. What follows is a dialogue regarding the nature of perception. In this book Osho offers his unique and highly accessible interpretation of the Buddha's words. When you read Osho, it is as if you are in the audience while he speaks. The words are recordings of his teachings - the easy, humorous conversational style makes for effortless reading and brings the most complex ideas into a form that anyone can understand and learn from. His irreverent wit and thought-provoking inspiration continue to attract growing numbers of readers and devotees. 'This sutra - "The Diamond Sutra" - was born in Sravasti. The Sanskrit name of this sutra is "Vajrachchhedika Prajnaparamita Sutra". It means perfection of wisdom which cuts like a thunderbolt. If you allow, Buddha can cut you like a thunderbolt. He can behead you. He can kill you and help you to be reborn. The new being is possible only when the old has been destroyed. A buddha has to be both - a murderer and a mother. On the one hand he has to kill, on the other hand he has to give new being to you' - Osho.

The Diamond Sutra Book Excerpt:

The Diamond Sutra is one of the most valued and widely read philosophical works in Buddhist literature. It is very popular amongst ardent Buddhists in China, and excepting the Lotus of the Good Law , and the Leng-Yen-Ching , perhaps no other Sutra ascribed to Buddha is regarded by the Chinese with so great esteem. In Japan, The Diamond Sutra appears to be perused extensively by what Max Müller termed the Shin-Gon sect, founded by Ko-Bo, a disciple of the renowned pilgrim Hiuen-Tsang, about the year 816 a.d. The Diamond Sutra was written originally in Sanscrit, and in process of time translated into the Tibetan, Chinese, Mongol, and Manchu languages. It represents the Mahayana school of Buddhist thought, a school founded by Nagarjuna, which flourished primarily at Tchakuka, and thereafter influenced appreciably a considerable part of the Buddhist Church.

Describing the Indescribable Book Excerpt:

The Diamond Sutra is revered throughout Asia as one of the Buddha's most profound expressions of the nature of reality. A gem among the vast Perfection of Wisdom literature, the Diamond Sutra elicits an experience of eternal truth through its use of a seemingly paradoxical style, as the reader goes back and forth between "what is" and "what is not." Master Hsing Yun skillfully plumbs the depths of the Diamond Sutra, illuminating for us its power to change who we are and how we interpret our world.

THE SPIRIT OF THE DIAMOND AND HEART SUTRAS Commentaries and interpretations of various sections of the Sutras. Based upon the Edward Conze Translation of the Vajracchedica-Pragna-paramite Sutra. By Yogi A.S. Narayana The author being a Western Yogi sets out to gain the merit and the blessing of the Buddha by demonstrating and illuminating the Sutra tooters to his best capacity and in accordance with his particular experience in Samadhi. The author is a European eclectic who is familiar with most of the esoteric classics of Chinese, Tibetan, Indian, Persian, Arabic, Greek and Egyptian Antiquity. He is in no capacity a Buddhist scholar, a Linguist, or and Orientalist. Far from being a theologian, Narayana is a practicing Samadhi to the reader in both, Eastern and Western terminology. He sets out to strip the sacred text to its utmost nakedness and truth. This is by eradicating addenda. Irrelevant dogma, and outright inventions. He stripe the Sutra of mythological phantasms, dogmatic and scholastic speculations, and outright fantasies by theocracy. He attempts to eliminate from the Sutra anything that in his view the Buddha

The Heart the Diamond and the Lotus Sutra Book Excerpt:

According to the Buddha, these sutras contain the method to understand his teachings, release ourselves from illusion, and enlighten. In addition to the Heart, Diamond and Lotus sutras, we provide the traditional introduction to the Lotus Sutra, called the Sutra of Innumerable Meanings, as well as its traditional conclusion, called the Sutra of meditation on Samanthabhadra, for a total of five wonderful sutras. These sutras are to be read and meditated. Their wisdom might not always come clear to the mind on the first reading, but meditation of their meaning will reveal the true wisdom of the dharma. They cover subjects about the self and non-self, the dharma and non-dharma. They will reveal to you the way to understand all mysteries of existence. Because there is nothing to be attained, the Bodhisattva relying on Prajna Paramita has no obstruction in his mind. Because there is no obstruction, he has no fear, and he passes far beyond confused imagination, and reaches ultimate nirvana. - The Buddha, Heart Sutra All composed things are like a dream, a phantom, a drop of dew, a flash of lightning. That is how to meditate on them, that is how to observe them. - The Buddha, Diamond Sutra
