Huayan translations

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Thu Feb 27, 2014 9:22 pm

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.

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.
"If the Buddha-Nature is seen, there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing."
(Nirvana Sutra, T12n374p521b3; tr. Yamamoto)

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

"With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
The six paramitas and myriad means are complete within that essence."

(Yongjia Xuanjue, T2014p395c14; tr. from "The Sword of Wisdom")
