    Empty Cloud, the Autobiography of Xu Yun is an interesting story He was born August 26 some say April 26 , 1840, at Chuanchowfu in Fukien Province, China His Father was an official of the prefecture His mother died immediately after giving birth to him His uncle was childless and adopted him as his heir At the age of eleven his uncle took him on pilgrimage to Nanyo He became so attached to the holy place that he was reluctant to return home He began to read the sutures and by the time h Empty Cloud, the Autobiography of Xu Yun is an interesting story He was born August 26 some say April 26 , 1840, at Chuanchowfu in Fukien Province, China His Father was an official of the prefecture His mother died immediately after giving birth to him His uncle was childless and adopted him as his heir At the age of eleven his uncle took him on pilgrimage to Nanyo He became so attached to the holy place that he was reluctant to return home He began to read the sutures and by the time he reached 14, he wanted to renounce the world In order to keep him at home his father and uncle engaged a Taoist to teach him meditation After practicing for three years, he decided that its teachings failed to reach the ultimate goal At age seventeen he fled to Nanyo but was soon found and brought home His grandmother decided he needed two wives to perpetuate the lineage of his father and his uncle He lived with his two wives, but neither marriage was consummated Instead he taught the wives the Dharma At 19, together with his cousin, he fled to Kushan monastery at Fuchow There his head was shaved he followed the Master Miao Lien and received full ordination Because he was cloistered in the monastery, his father and uncle were not able to track him down and bring him home Six years later he returned home on his own His dad had died His mom and both wives had entered the monastic life For the next three decades he lived the life of a wandering hermit walking to Tibet where he visited many monasteries and holy places, including the Potala, the seat of the Dalai Lama, and Tashilhunpo Monastery, the seat of the Panchen Lama He traveled back through India, Ceylon and Burma He composed a great number of poems during this time and achieved enlightenment at the age of 56 At the turn of the Twentieth Century he began to serve as Abbot at a series of monasteries in various places across China He worked as administrator, teaching precepts and explaining sutras His main passion, however, was restoring and renovating monasteries He designed improvements, raised funds and supervised projects throughout Asia for the next sixty years During World War II he remained in China rather than seeking safety in Hong Kong or Taiwan After the rise of the Communist regime, he and his disciples were often mistreated and tortured Hsu Yun persevered supported by a following in Burma, Thailand, Malaya, Vietnam, Tibet and China In The last decade of his life he worked not only on the infrastructure of monasteries but on the spirit of Buddhism itself which was nearly extinguished during the time of Mao s Cultural Revolution In 1953 he founded the Chinese Buddhist Association which still thrives today Beyond all this, what I found most fascinating were the references to what could be called paranormal occurrences I often thought of Hamlet s comment, There arethings in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy Throughout his account he tells of occasions of radiant auras and total vision While in a state of Samadhi he had a vision of flying on a golden dragon There was a rooster reciting Buddha s name, a mantra reciting raven, floating boulders spontaneous flowers, levitating monks and self healing bells Some people tell lies others simply say things that are hard to believe Xu Yun died October 13, 1959.at the age of 120

    I loved this book Empty Cloud lived to be 120 years old This book offers a simple account of his life about a page per year To me he represents the best example of a person seeking a spiritual life He is non dogmatic and dedicated to peace The last I checked the book was out of print and the cheapest used copy listed onwas going for about 90 I hope this book is reprinted.

    What a fascinating life and deeply engaging teaching from a true Chan master, Xu Yun It is phenomenal that this man lived from 1840 1959 I believe, were it not for the nearly fatal beating he received at the hands of government thugs who left him for dead at the age of 112, that he would have lived to see the moon landing and would not have been impressed He was so far beyond time and space, living in a continuous cycle of rebirth and renewal During the time he was beaten and left for dead, What a fascinating life and deeply engaging teaching from a true Chan master, Xu Yun It is phenomenal that this man lived from 1840 1959 I believe, were it not for the nearly fatal beating he received at the hands of government thugs who left him for dead at the age of 112, that he would have lived to see the moon landing and would not have been impressed He was so far beyond time and space, living in a continuous cycle of rebirth and renewal During the time he was beaten and left for dead, he had powerful dream of entering into the Tushita Heaven and speaking to Maitreya Buddha Maitreya was teaching to many of his contemporaries who had already passed away, but stopped and told him that he should go back to his monastery When Xu Yun protested, Maitreya chanted a gatha to Xu Yun which reads in part Because of your great compassion you have vowed to save all beings and are now involved in this world of dreams The evil karma of this aeon flourishes So be alert, awake to all that happens Turn not back when from compassion the seas of suffering you sail The lotus rises from the mud to flower, bearing a Buddha seated in its center It is a moment when as he hovers between life and death, he completely wipes out all feelings of happiness and suffering and returns to consciousness, much to the temerity of the thugs who beat him When asked why he did not succumb to their beating, the reply is The old Master endures suffering for the welfare of all living beings and also to help you escape from your troubles Later you will know why he did not succumb to your beating When myths that grow up around great masters are told, it is easy to attribute them to the product of other times when the thinking is less scientific but this story, grounded in my time, attests to the power of unwavering commitment to zen practice I was especially moved by his humility and his grace and courage as, after his recovery, he continued his work of renewing the faith of thousands of people during his life, reviving the integrity of monastic practice, and rebuilding and restoring the monasteries that had fallen into decay He received a clear mandate at a young age to follow the Buddha s teachings and received confirmation from the 6th Patriarch and he followed that mandate to its fullest He was teaching up to the day of his passing A really inspiring read The final chapters titled his 114th year he presides over a week of meditation, at the end of each day he teaches the participants His teaching is drenched in the fragrance of plums There is so much he desires to impart Not for his sake but for the sake of the dharma Truly is an inspiration I am reading this at age 65, and it is implicit that at age 65 there is so muchto accomplish in life
