The Platform Sutra

Translation and Commentary By: Red Pine
Along with The Heart Sutra and The Diamond Sutra, The Platform Sutra occupies a central place in Zen Buddhist teaching. Unlike the other sutras, however, which relay the teachings of the Buddha himself, The Platform Sutra presents the life and work of Hui-neng, sixth patriarch of Zen. Red Pine here offers a sensitive and straightforward translation of this vital Buddhist text, along with his own remarkably insightful commentary.
