Other Information

The Rabbit’s Horn is a new English translation and commentary on the Platform Sutra, one of the foundational texts of the meditation (chan) school of Buddhism, and contains the teachings and life story of Venerable Master Huineng. Born in the seventh century to a poor family and raised in the backwoods of southern China, Huineng became the Sixth Patriarch of the Chan School and exerted a remarkable influence on the history of Buddhism. A polarizing force in his own time, Huineng emphasized looking past even the rabbit s horn of textual knowledge to look within and understand one s true nature and the potential for sudden awakening.
