The Unencumbered Spirit: Reflections of a Chinese Sage

Производитель: "Kodansha"

We know almost nothing of Hung Ying-ming, except that he lived around the end of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and that he was extraordinarily well-read and cultured. The Unencumbered Spirit is his classic work, a tour de force offering wise words distilled through the fundamental teachings of Taoism, Confucianism and Zen Buddhism. Hung`s poetic prose embodies the infinite transformations of the world`s opposites, what the Chinese called yin and yang--good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, heaven and hell. Wise, profound, spiritual, humorous, witty, and timeless, The Unencumbered Spirit is, in short, a book about putting greed and competition aside, about getting at the true, clear essence of things, free of distractions and encumbrances. It is a book about living without stuff, whether it be material, psychological, or spiritual. About living with simplicity and awareness.`It has been rare for one person to develop a thorough grasp of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism, such is their profundity. But there have been a few. Among them, one person`s work stands above the rest: namely, Hung Ying-ming`s The Unencumbered Spirit. I can recommend this work to anyone interested in the way of the world`s greatest sages, whose teachings can help us all to see into and to improve our own lives.`Bill Porter (aka Red Pine), from the Foreword
