The Zen Doctrine of No-Mind: The Significance of the Sutra of Hui-Neng (Wei-Lang) by D. T. Suzuki

20140618-193427-70467276.jpg

Dedicated largely to the teaching of Hui Neng, this volume covers the purpose and technique of Zen training, and goes further into the depths of Zen than any other work of modern times. Here we find no reliance on scripture or a Savior, for the student isshown how to go beyond thought in order to achieve a state of consciousness beyond duality.

While I do not promote self-salvation, to read this will give some insight as to how some people think. Some techniques are valid and helpful.
