Platform Sutra Course

There are several translations of the Platform Sutra mostly based on one from 1929 that has a style so old it obscures the meaning. I have Chapter 1 of my slightly improved version of it here. Students at the Tsung Lin University should download a copy and have a look before class.

Some years ago I visited Master Hui Neng's, Nan Hua Temple where his mummified body is still on display. If you are curious, I have set them out here.
