Introduction: Biographies

The Venerable Master lectured on a wide range of biographies -- various figures of the past, as well as contemporary figures to serve as lessons for all. In this section, we present extracts of the Biography of the Venerable Master Hsu Yun, Lives of the Patriarchs, Records of High Sanghans, and Reflections in Water and Mirrors. Although they are by no means representative of any particular lecture series by the Venerable Master, we hope to interest the reader in this diverse range of biographies lectured by the Venerable Master.
