Author: Chan Master Guo Ru
Publishing details: Chan Grove, Taipei, Taiwan, 2014, paperback, 169 pages.
Price: A$20.00 + free post & packaging within Australia.
Stock identification number: B14
Abstract: This book is the English translation of 禪門輕叩 (Knocking on the Door of Chan), which was published by Chan Grove in Taiwan in 2011. A decision was subsequently made to publish the book in English to fulfill Master Guo Ru’s wish to make it available to his Western students, as well as to share the Dharma of Chan with others. The lectures in this book are for the most part a compilation from a 10-day Chan retreat given by Master Guo Ru at the Dharma Drum Retreat Center at Pine Bush, New York, in June of 2009. A smaller portion came from a 7-day Chan retreat at the Dharma Drum Mountain Vancouver Center in July of 2009. The “Postscript” chapter is from a 7-day Chan retreat he led at the Dharma Drum Mountain affiliate monastery in Taoyuan, Taiwan, in May of 2011. The appendix, “Silent Illumination and Huatou” is a compilation from talks given at the 2009 retreats at Dharma Drum Retreat Center and the Dharma Drum Mountain Vancouver Center.
