Pick it Up! Chan Stories to Inspire星雲禪話



’Pick it Up!’ is an award winning collection of Chan (Zen) stories or gong’ans (koans) which are mostly dialogues between Chan masters and practitioners of Chan within Chinese Buddhism as well as Zen Masters from the Japanese tradition. They teach us that practicing Chan is not about escaping responsibilities of mundane life or just sitting in meditation; not just letting go of our attachments, but to pick it up when the need arises for compassion in helping others.

This little book contains many of the largest figures of Chinese Chan and Japanese Zen Buddhism, and as the saying goes, "big impact happens in small packages." The gōng’ans in this book are specifically chosen by Venerable Master Hsing Yun and he has provided commentary to offer us a clearer picture of the history and to relate it to our modern life. The stories themselves provide us a glimpse into the lives of these Chan Masters who have devoted themselves to the study of Buddhism, and through these stories, we can come to understand their compassion, directness, and sense of humor. It is hoped that you will draw inspiration from this book and "Pick it Up!" often.
