DESCRIBING THE INDESCRIBABLE

A Commentary on the Diamond Sutra

Master Hsing Yun Tom Graham

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.
