100 Excerpts from Zen Buddhist Texts
In a way, this book is the product of the joint effort of the editor and the translators, and the multiple perspectives rightly reflect the multiplicity of Zen perceptions. As the saying goes, "Those who in Buddha's name do meet, destiny has made them each other to greet." As an aid to fuller understanding, each excerpt is provided with simple annotations and a translation into contemporary Chinese; observations on the stories are also included to help interpretation where necessary. Also provided is a simple glossary of terms which have their origins in Sanskrit, for ease of reference for those new to Zen discourse and to obviate the need for repeated annotations.
