These wise and funny stories have been an inspiration to spiritual practice for more than twelve centuries, particularly for all those who follow the Buddhist path as laypeople. Layman P’ang (740–808) was a merchant and family man who one day put all his money and possessions in a boat and sunk it in a river, so that he could devote his life to the study of the dharma. His wife, son, and daughter joined him enthusiastically on his new path, taking up a joyfully itinerant life together as they traveled from temple to monastery across southern China. This collection of anecdotes and verses about the enlightened layman and his family has become an enduring Zen classic.

"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. For the first time, the classic sayings of Master Mazu Daoyi, with all their timeless insight, are presented and unpacked for the English-language practitioner. Each chapter in Master Ma's Ordinary Mind offers Bellando's crystal-clear translation of one of Mazu's classic dialogues and then follows it with Dr. 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. This book is destined to become a classic collection alongside The Blue Cliff Record and The Gateless Gate. In Master Ma's Ordinary Mind, readers 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 mind, just as it is, also functions as the mind of enlightenment. This, "ordinary mind", is the very expression of buddhanature. Includes an appendix on Mazu's life by Andy Ferguson, author of Zen's Chinese Heritage.
