Zen Buddhism is often said to be a practice of mind-to-mind transmission without reliance on texts --in fact, some great teachers forbid their students to read or write. But Buddhism has also inspired some of the greatest philosophical writings of any religion, and two such works lie at the center of Zen: The Heart Sutra, which monks recite all over the world, and The Diamond Sutra, said to contain answers to all questions of delusion and dualism. This is the Buddhist teaching on the perfection of wisdom and cuts through all obstacles on the path of practice. As Red Pine explains: The Diamond Sutra may look like a book, but it's really the body of the Buddha. It's also your body, my body, all possible bodies. But it's a body with nothing inside and nothing outside. It doesn't exist in space or time. Nor is it a construct of the mind. It's no mind. And yet because it's no mind, it has room for compassion. This book is the offering of no mind, born of compassion for all suffering beings. Of all the sutras that teach this teaching, this is the diamond.

The Diamond Sutra, composed in India in the fourth century CE, is one of the most treasured works of Buddhist literature and is the oldest existing printed book in the world. It is known as the Diamond Sutra because its teachings are said to be like diamonds that cut away all dualistic thought, releasing one from the attachment to objects and bringing one to the further shore of enlightenment. The format of this important sutra is presented as a conversation between the Buddha and one of his disciples. The Sutra of Hui-neng, also known as the Platform Sutra, contains the autobiography of a pivotal figure in Zen history and some of the most profound passages of Zen literature. Hui-neng (638–713) was the sixth patriarch of Zen in China, but is often regarded as the true father of the Zen tradition. He was a poor, illiterate woodcutter who is said to have attained enlightenment upon hearing a recitation of the Diamond Sutra. Together, these two scriptures present the central teaching of the Zen Buddhist tradition and are essential reading for all students of Buddhism.

The Diamond Sutra is revered throughout Asia as one of the Buddha's most profound expressions of the nature of reality. A gem among the vast Perfection of Wisdom literature, the Diamond Sutra elicits an experience of eternal truth through its use of a seemingly paradoxical style, as the reader goes back and forth between "what is" and "what is not." Master Hsing Yun skillfully plumbs the depths of the Diamond Sutra, illuminating for us its power to change who we are and how we interpret our world.

Written over 25 centuries ago, "The Diamond Sutra", like many sutras, begins with the famous phrase 'Thus have I heard'. In this sutra the Buddha has finished his daily walk with the monks to gather offerings of food, and sits down to rest. One of the more senior monks, Subhuti, comes forth and asks the Buddha a question. What follows is a dialogue regarding the nature of perception. In this book Osho offers his unique and highly accessible interpretation of the Buddha's words. When you read Osho, it is as if you are in the audience while he speaks. The words are recordings of his teachings - the easy, humorous conversational style makes for effortless reading and brings the most complex ideas into a form that anyone can understand and learn from. His irreverent wit and thought-provoking inspiration continue to attract growing numbers of readers and devotees. 'This sutra - "The Diamond Sutra" - was born in Sravasti. The Sanskrit name of this sutra is "Vajrachchhedika Prajnaparamita Sutra". It means perfection of wisdom which cuts like a thunderbolt. If you allow, Buddha can cut you like a thunderbolt. He can behead you. He can kill you and help you to be reborn. The new being is possible only when the old has been destroyed. A buddha has to be both - a murderer and a mother. On the one hand he has to kill, on the other hand he has to give new being to you' - Osho.
