Zen Buddhism is a unique school of spiritual development using many systems of philosophy, psychology and ethics in the course of its own technique of 'Sudden Enlightenment'. In this first volume of Essays in Zen Buddhism, the opening chapters are concerned with Zen as the Chinese interpretation of the Doctrine of Enlightenment; Enlightenment and ignorance and the history of Zen Buddhism in China up to the time of the Sixth Patriarch, Huineng, who gave shape to the purely Chinese aspect of Zen. The next chapters discuss the attainment of Satori, or the opening of the spiritual eye, and the methods which are needed to bring this about. The educational system is described in the chapter on the meditation hall, and finally the stages of spiritual progress by gradual purification are discussed in terms of the ten ox-herding pictures. Printed Pages: 388.
