This book opens a window into the daily life of Gold Mountain Monastery in San Francisco during the early years of the Venerable Master Hsuan Hua’s ministry in America. In the summer of 1968, the Venerable Master began a series of lectures on the great scriptures of the Mahayana, completing first the Shurangama Sutra, then the Lotus Sutra, and finally the Flower Adornment ( Avatamsaka) Sutra in 1979. He then continued lecturing regularly until his gradual retirement in the late 1980’s. These incomparable lectures were the first of their kind to be heard in any Western country.
