Teachings FromAncient Vietnamese Zen Masters
Translated and Commented by Nguyen Giac
This book is dedicated to:- my three teachers -- The Zen Master Thich Tich Chieu, and the lateDharma Masters Thich Thien Tam and Thich Tai Quang;- all my parents in this life and other lives;- a very special layperson who is urgently needing help from Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva; and all sentient beings.I am grateful to a lot of Zen monks and laypersons who translated theverses composed by ancient Vietnamese Zen Masters into the modern Vietnamese language, and made reference easy for later generations.Specifically, I am indebted to the Zen Masters Thich Thanh Tu, Tri SieuLe Manh That and to layperson Tran Dinh Son, whose works I relied onwhile working on this book.(Extracted from a book in progress.Please feel free to use for reference purposes.On the web:http://thuvienhoasen.org/ZenAncientMasters.htm  All suggestions are welcome.Email: nguyengiac@yahoo.com -- California, 2006)

1 Sitting
There are three ways of sitting in meditation.First, sit and keep your mind on breathing;Second, sit and chant the sutras; And third, sit and happily listen to the chanting of sutras.Sitting has three levels.First, sit in union;Second, sit in peacefulness; And third, sit without fetters.What does it mean to sit in union?That means your mind becomes one with your body.What does it mean to sit in peacefulness?That means your mind has no thought.What does it mean to sit without fetters?When all fetters are destroyed – that means to sit without fetters.KHUONG TANG HOI (? – 280)(COMMENT: When mindful of your breathing, you are also mindful of your mind. Later, you will see your mind becoming one with your breath.When mindful of your bodily movement, you are also mindful of yourmind. Later, you will see your mind becoming one with your body.Looking at your mind, you see thoughts coming and going, just likewaves rising and falling. When you see no thoughts occurring, your mindis peaceful just like a still lake.)
