Thiền Nguyên Thủy - Teachings from Ancient Vietnamese Zen Masters, Translated and Commented by Nguyen Giac





Translated and Commented by Nguyen Giac
This book is dedicated to:

- my three teachers -- The Zen Master Thich Tich Chieu, and the late Dharma Masters Thich Thien Tam and Thich Tai Quang; 
- all my parents in this life and other lives; 
- a very special layperson who is urgently needing help from Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva; and all sentient beings.

I am grateful to a lot of Zen monks and laypersons who translated the verses composed by ancient Vietnamese Zen Masters into the modern Vietnamese language, and made reference easy for later generations. Specifically, I am indebted to the Zen Masters Thich Thanh Tu, Tri Sieu Le Manh That and to layperson Tran Dinh Son, whose works I relied on while working on this book.
