This talk introduces Chan Master Hanyue’s 漢月 (1573–1635) attitude toward sūtra teachings in the late Ming by using a rare book, Hanyue’s Guiding Words on the Zhizheng zhuan於密滲提寂音尊者智證傳. Hanyue represents a mature and confident attitude towards sūtra teachings on the part of a Chan master during this late stage of development in imperial China. This talk will also introduce the rare material collection at Fo Guang University, Taiwan.
