A resdable translation of two works by - or at least based on the discourses of - Hui Neng, known as one of the greatest figures in the history of Zen/Chan and in Chinese Buddhism as a whole. The 'Sutra' sums up his approach to the dharma. His commentary on the famous Indian Mahayana text the Diamond Sutra is the second work. To a modern reader without a particular background in Zen/Chan, he can seem sometimes quite obscure, at other times strikingly contemporary
