Complete Works of Sheng Yen

Postby Indrajala » Mon Mar 05, 2012 1:26 pm

Dharma Drum Mountain has all of the late Master Sheng Yen's works online at the following address. It is mostly Chinese, but there are several translations too.

http://ddc.shengyen.org/

Please click "9" on the left for a list of his works translated into foreign languages (primarily English).

In due time I imagine all of the English translations will be available. At the moment DDM is translating all of his works into English.

No new translations there in the last few years. Unfortunately, there are quite a few books that are not uploaded there, like those about huatou and mozhao practice.
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

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