about

Recognized as one of the greatest masterpieces of Buddhist literature, the teachings of Hui Neng have brought joy and inspiration to countless people since they were first written down in the sixth century. An illiterate woodcutter who was instantly enlightened, Hui Neng went on to become the Sixth Patriarch of Zen Buddhism. As a founding father of Zen, his profound, yet simple, teachings speak from a fullness of heart and mind.
Tze-si "Jesse" Huang was born in Chungking, China, the youngest of ten children. At a young age, Jesse stowed away on a freighter going to Hong Kong and Taiwan, and eventually immigrated to the US, attending NYU and Columbia for post-graduate studies. In 1975, he met his wife, the children's book author and illustrator, Demi.
