Hsin Hsin Ming (Shinjinmei)

Post by eputkonen » Fri Sep 05, 2008 5:25 pm

I recommend the Hsin Hsin Ming by Seng-ts'an, the Third Patriarch of Zen...aka as the Shinjinmei by Sosan in Japan.

I know this is more Zen in origin, but very much the essence of nonduality and enlightenment. There is a translation by Richard Clarke on Amazon for $4 and several versions for free on the web, but I would like to offer my interpretation that I just released in PDF e-book and MP3 audiobook formats at http://www.awaken2life.org

It is short - 15 pages (e-book) or 10 minutes (audiobook)...but well worth looking at...and not to mention free.

Since release (the above first post), this free e-book has been downloaded over 2,000 times. I still get emails and comments that people really enjoy this book - so if you have not read what Seng-ts'an wrote about back in the 6th century...I recommend reading it.

Since then, my website has had a redesign...so this link will bring you straight to the ebook and audiobook - http://www.awaken2life.org/free-e-book-a-audiobook.html

"Do not seek Truth; only cease to cherish opinion."

Truth as succinct as it can get.

Thanks.
