Thread: Beginner's Sutra Studies

    Re: Beginner's Sutra Studies

    That was a joke from Brad I believe. :wink:

    A sad story indeed.
    The only thing that worries me is that someone who doesn't have a teacher and doesn't bother to read the reviews might mistake this for a "translation", when it is not. It won't matter in a hundred years and I doubt it will soil Nishijima Roshi's reputation much.

    I believe Jundo's intentions in trying to stop the publication and writing his review were good.
    I believe Brad's intentions in publishing his teacher's work were good.

    And intentions do matter.

    I just started reading (well about 1/4 through it) Red Pine's Heart Sutra book, and it's a wonder. He's a great writer, adopting a mix of scholarly and "lay" commentary. Highly readable, and what a fascinating dive into the HS's history and interpretations. Highly recommended!

    Thanks for the tip.
