During his almost 120 year life span (1840-1959), Master Hsu Yun (Empty Cloud), saw the end of imperial China, the short lived rise of the democratic republic, two world wars and the eventual rule of the Chinese Communist Party.

Master Hsu Yun, a true sage of the 19th and early 20th centuries, valiantly and almost single handedly kept orthodox Buddhism alive for the Asian people. He founded Jen Ru Monastery in Jiang Xi and restored Nan Hua Monastery in Canton, the bodhimanda of the Sixth Patriarch Hui Neng. He can be considered one of the last Buddhist patriarchs of China. His main disciples, took the mind- to-mind seal, passed down from patriarch to patriarch from the original master Shakyamuni Buddha, across the Pacific Ocean to America.

Volume 1 covers the Master’s birth and education through his enlightenment. Volume 2 covers the Master’s propagation of Buddhism throughout Asia.
