The Pictorial Biography of the
Venerable Master Hsu Yun

40. WALKING AND SITTING MEDITATION AT KAO MIN MONASTERY IN YANG CHOU

Kao Ming Monastery, at San Che (Three Creeks) River was a Bodhimanda at which Ch'an meditation was exclusively practiced. The majority of experts in this field strictly adhered to there, making dragons coil up and tigers lie down. Although the members of the vast assembly numbered several hundred, never was the slightest stray voice or sound to be heard. It was a pure Aranya in every respect. In the year 1882, the Master came here to participate and bowed to the Venerable Master Lang Hui (Dazzling Brilliance). because he vigorously cultivated still comtemplation, he made progress and gained skill.

 

 

The verse says:

Housing one's essential energies"

refers to the ascetic practices,

Not giving up day and night

is just the Mahayana. 

Within the Prajna Wisdom Hall,

contemplate sovereignty.

And at the Buddha Selection Field,

see who is successful.
