A brief biography of Master Hsuan Hua (pinyin Xuan Hua), the dharma heir to Master Hsu Yun and the 45th Buddhist patriarch in direct lineage from Shakyamuni Buddha. This book describes his humble beginning in a small village in Manchuria, China, his quest for an enlightened teacher, his stay at Nan Hua Monastery, the bodhimandha of the Sixth Patriarch and his journey to Hong Kong to keep orthodox Buddhism alive.

In 1962, he brought monastic Mahayana Buddhism to America. He founded the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, the International Translation Institute, and numerous other branch monasteries.
