Master Hsu Yun’s Chan Teachings

Master Hsu Yun’s Chan
Return to Self-Nature
Go Straight Home:
to your own
Buddha Nature.
Leave the baggage
behind -attachments to all
those things we hold
onto so dearly.
Find the Way
When you meet an obstacle
Go on!
Don't Linger!
Let the mind rest nowhere.
Take a breath and move forward,
ready for the next one.
Watching your thoughts
Sit still.
Look inside.
Watch what happens . . .
Where does the thought begin?
Heed Master Han Shan's warning.
Do not become immersed in stagnant waters!
Move forward . . .
Enter the Dharmakaya
Recognize the constant changing of all things
Cultivate indifference - Be unmovable, yet aware,
watching things arise and pass . . .
Have Faith
Blessings to you
on the Path.
Discovering the
unknown ...
Climbing into the
cloud of Truth.
Reaching the top of the
hundred-foot pole . . .
What will you let go of?
Where will you go?
The Hua Tao has led here . . .
Clear, like the autumn moon
reflected in a still pool.
Buddha Mind
Buddha Mind
everything is
No longer
following the
stream of birth
and death -
There is only
Abiding in complete detachment.
No form. No opinions. No objections.
Just peace.
