Among the most important texts of Zen literature, the Lin-Chi lu details the insights and exploits of the great ninth century Chinese Zen master Lin-chi, one of the most highly regarded of the T'ang period masters. PEN Translation Prize-winner Burton Watson presents here an eloquent translation -- the first in the English language -- of this seminal classic, The Zen Teachings of Master Lin-chi. The work is an exacting depiction of Lin-chi's words and actions, describing the Zen master's life and teaching, and includes a number of his sermons. Because Lin-chi's school outlasted other forms of early Chinese Zen to become dominant throughout China to this day, this translation bears unique significance within the literature of this great Asian nation. With Watson's lucid introduction to the work, a glossary of terms, and notes to the text, The Zen Teachings of Master Lin-chi is a generously constructed and accessible model of translation that will stand as the definitive primary material on Lin-chi for many years to come.

Synopsis:

Among the most important texts of Zen literature is the "Lin-chi lu", which details the insights and exploits of the great ninth-century Chinese Zen master Lin-chi, one of the most highly regarded of the Tang period masters. PEN translation prize-winner Burton Watson presents an eloquent translation of this seminal classic for modern readers - the only English-language version of the "Lin-chi lu" available. Lin-chis style of Zen - encouraging the use of unorthodox teaching methods and stressing the importance of koan study - is well known to western readers and scholars, and is beautifully rendered in Watson's translation. The work is an exacting depiction of Lin-chis words and actions, describing the Zen master's life and teachings and including a number of his sermons, long recognized for their brisk, evocative language. Watson contributes a lucid introduction, as well as a glossary and notes.

About the Author:

Burton Watson, the recipient of the 1981 PEN Translation Prize, has taught Chinese and Japanese literature at Columbia, Stanford, and Kyoto universities. He has translated dozens of Chinese and Japanese classics, including The Lotus Sutra, Records of the Grand Historian, and Chuang Tzu.
