    The Śūraṅgama Sūtra Digest - Irresistible Love
    by Ven. Chang Hwa
    The Surangama Sutra is regarded as a very important sutra in the Chan school. It gives both theoretical analysis and practical guidance for practitioners to reach the highest samadhi. By using the three aspects of wondrous samatha, samapatti, and dhyana as a scaffold, it provides instruction on the correct understanding of Buddha nature, the true mind/nirvana, the illusory mind/mundane existences, the ways to reach enlightenment, the Surangama mantra, and the demonic states of mind. This Sutra is a complete and practical manual for meditation practitioners.

    Being, Knowing, and Doing – From studying the self to forgetting the self.
    by Dr. Peter Lin
    As Master Dogen said, “To Study the way, is to study the self, to study the self is to forget the self.” You have to be somebody before you can be nobody. This lecture series will be a survey of the major theories of personality and the important applications associated with each theoretical approach. Specifically, it will address (from a psychological perspective) the question, “who am I?”
