PDF: The Spirit of Zen
by Sam van Schaik
Yale University Press, 2018, 272 p.

Leading Buddhist scholar Sam van Schaik explores the history and essence of Zen, based on a new translation of one of the earliest surviving collections of teachings by Zen masters. These teachings, titled The Masters and Students of the Lanka, were discovered in a sealed cave on the old Silk Road, in modern Gansu, China, in the early twentieth century. All more than a thousand years old, the manuscripts have sometimes been called the Buddhist Dead Sea Scrolls, and their translation has opened a new window onto the history of Buddhism.

The Tibetan Chan Manuscripts: A Complete Descriptive Catalogue of Tibetan Chan Texts in the Dunhuang Manuscript Collections. Papers on Central Eurasia 1(41). Bloomington: Indiana University. 2014, 100 pp.

Those who have read my posts on this site about Tibetan Chan (or Zen, if you will) might be interested in this catalogue of the Tibetan Chan texts found in the Dunhuang manuscript collections. The catalogue discusses 42 manuscripts, many of which are compendia containing several Chan texts. I've included some previously unknown Chan manuscripts (including the one on the cover) and put together some manuscripts that had been separated between the London and Paris collections. I've also looked at writing styles, both to date manuscripts and to suggest when two or more might have been written by the same person. The catalogue also has an introduction to the Tibetan Chan manuscripts and previous scholarship on them, plus an index of titles in Tibetan, Chinese and Sanskrit.

The book is in the revived and renamed series   Papers on Central Eurasia (previously Papers on Inner Asia), now under the editorial guidance of Edward Lazzerini, and published by Indiana University's Sinor Research Institute (there's more info on   their site). It has 100 pages with some colour plates, though full images of almost all the manuscripts are on the   IDP website. Details on how to order a copy (physical or PDF) are on   this page. The research for this publication was sponsored by The British Academy, and I'd also like to thank John McRae, Drikung Kyabgon Rinpoche, Jacob Dalton, Susan Whitfield, Cristoph Anderl and Imre Galambos for their help.

And here are those posts on Tibetan Chan, written back in 2007–2011: Tibetan Chan I | Tibetan Chan II | Tibetan Chan III | Tibetan Chan IV | Tibetan Chan V

Tibetan Chan I: The Emperor's Chan
Tibetan Chan II: The teachings of Heshang Moheyan
Tibetan Chan III: More teachings of Heshang Moheyan
Tibetan Chan IV: The Great Debate
Tibetan Chan V: Dzogchen and Chan

PDF: A zen szellemisége
Fordította: Dr. Borbély-Bartis Katalin
Pallas Athéné Könyvkiadó Kft., Budapest, 2019, 288 oldal

A 20. század elején, a régi Selyemút mentén, egy lezárt barlangban találtak rá a zen mesterek legrégebbi, több mint 1000 éves tanításaira. A "buddhista holt-tengeri tekercseknek" is nevezett kéziratok teljesen új megvilágításba helyezték a buddhizmus történetét. Sam van Schaik, a tibeti buddhizmus történetének elismert kutatója e szövegemlékek saját fordításai alapján nyújt bepillantást a zen történetébe és lényegébe.
