"One Mind (yixin) was the central symbol of early Hongzhou Chan in its origins, and it has carried through this monastery all of these centuries into this revealing film. The result is a deeply moving glimpse into classical but contemporary Chan meditative life. At one point Maitreya instructs Sudhana: “Young Pilgrim, continue forth in gratitude,” which is precisely the response that comes to me as reviewer. Many thanks to Edward A. Burger and crew for including us in the “one mind” of True Suchness monastery. Highly recommended. This is an authentic Chan film."
