"This is extremely well done: while the translation stays very close to the original, it is also very readable, and it will be well suited for general audiences. Unlike many other existing translations of Chan/Zen works, this is done by an expert in the field with a thorough understanding of the text and its context." — Morten Schl├╝tter, The University of Iowa, author of How Zen Became Zen: The Dispute Over Enlightenment and the Formation of Chan Buddhism in Song-Dynasty China

"...Adamek has done the field a great service by making this fascinating early Chan work more accessible. The translation is meticulous and lucid." — Mark Halperin, Journal of Chinese Religions
