Summary

Summary

A tale of enlightenment for both beginners and advanced students of Buddhist philosophy. Written in poetic style, The Master is an account of the wanderings of an enlightened Master and his pupil, and is part of the great tradition of Chinese Buddhist literature. The book is attractive not just for its treatment of Buddhist themes, but also for the insights it gives into Chinese daily life in former times. It is a close-up view of a vanished society based on the knowledge of someone who has great knowledge of both Buddhism and Chinese culture. The Master is ideal for those seeking to understand Buddhist thought. It is light and easy to read, but at the same time profound and thought-provoking.
