Description: When Buddhism was brought to China From India in the sixth century A.D., there flowered a school of teaching that would come to have a profound impact on the world. Though many in the United States are not directly familiar with Ch'an teaching, it is nonetheless very close to us today through its Japanese descendant, Zen. And even though Zen has helped disseminate some of the basic insights of Ch'an, this flourishing Chinese school of Buddhism retains much in its teaching that is particular to itself. In "Subtle Wisdom," one of its foremost living authorities, Master Sheng-yen, a Dharma descendant from the founders of Buddhism in China, introduces readers to this powerful world of thought.

From a uniquely Chinese perspective, Sheng-yen considers the concepts of suffering, enlightenment, and compassion, provides a glossary of key terms, and briefly recaps the history of Buddhism in China. But he goes beyond these customary issues to discuss contemporary matters and questions he has encountered in his years teaching in the United States. Sometimes personal and always instructive, Sheng-yen's work is perfect for those just coming to Buddhism or those who are already very familiar with the Tibetan and Zen schools. A valuable addition to any collection of spiritual works, "Subtle Wisdom" is an important step forward for American Buddhism.
