E-Book review:

From Publishers Weekly

Lin-Chi Ihs?an (810-866) was one of the great masters of Chinese Ch'an Buddhism. Many schools of Ch'an Buddhism have died out, and Lin-Chi's school is only one of two schools that was introduced into Japan in the 13th century. In Japan, Ch'an Buddhism became Zen Buddhism. Watson's translation of the Recorded Sayings of Ch'an Master Lin-Chi, or the Lin-chi lu, is the first ever English translation of this important teacher's works. Regarded as the "king" of the recorded sayings literary form, Lin-Chi's work is divided into four parts. The first section, "Ascending the Hall," contains short narrative descriptions of Lin-Chi's coming into the seat of honor and answering questions from monks and laypeople. The second section, "Instructing the Group," offers Lin-Chi's Dharma sermons to the students he is instructing in the Ch'an way. A third section, "Testing and Rating," records encounters between master and students; in each brief parabolic meditation, the Master rates the student's understanding of the lesson being taught. A final section, "Record of Activities," describes many of Lin-Chi's travels and the conversations he had with other Ch'an masters in these travels. Watson provides a splendid historical and biographical overview as a preface to his lyrical translation.

Review

"This splendid text is made up of fragments salvaged on the fly from an ancient life of subtle and rowdy Buddhist practice. The Teacher Lin-chi is always present: relentlessly pushing his students to keep moving. And they push back in the spirit of humorous defiance and hardy admiration...Burton Watson's five decades of Japanese and Chinese studies, and his own Ch'an (Zen) work, has eminently prepared him for giving us this premier translation of the world's most astringent (but tasty!) religious classic."
