Huayan translations

As some here may have noticed, I am rather fond of the Avatamsaka Sutra and its principal exponents. Should you find a good translation of a Huayan text, please put it in this thread.

I know of Cleary's small collection Entry Into the Inconceivable; several versions of Fazang's Golden Lion; this Vorenkamp version of Fazang on the Awakening of Faith and not much else.

General studies of Huayan like Cook's or Chang's et al do not interest me.
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

This is a partial commentary, not finished online yet - I guess. Master Chi Hoi puts together varied comments from traditional sources on the Awakening of Faith. There is a second part also at this site: http://en.bwlh.org/fileadmin/shenghui_u ... yana_1.pdf

A fine short piece by Dr Tony Prince on Fazang's Dedication Prayer:

The Collected Works of Korean Buddhism, volumes 4 & 5 contain translations of Huayan/Hwaeom works.
"There is no such thing as the real mind. Ridding yourself of delusion: that's the real mind."
(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

"Neither cultivation nor seated meditation — this is the pure Chan of Tathagata."
(Mazu Daoyi, X1321p3b23; tr. Jinhua Jia)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

(Nanyue Mingzan: Enjoying the Way, tr. Jeff Shore; T2076p461b24-26)
