"Ordinary Mind is itself the Way," said Mazu Daoyi. See what this master has to say-and discover the extraordinary nature of your own "ordinary" life. InMaster Ma's Ordinary Mind, you will learn the true nature of enlightenment from one of Zen's great teachers. Master Mazu's teachings help us to see how our own "ordinary mind," just as it is, also functions as the mind of enlightenment-the very expression of buddhanature. Master Mazu's classic sayings, with all their timeless insight, are here presented and unpacked for beginner and advanced practitioners alike. Each chapter offers John Bellando's crystal-clear translation of one of Mazu's classic dialogues and then follows it with Dr. Fumio Yamada's gentle, encouraging commentary. Together, they guide us through the many layers of meaning in these koans, showing us what Mazu can mean for us today. Includes an appendix on Mazu's life by Andy Ferguson, author ofZen's Chinese Heritage.
