Huang Po : Biography

A Chinese Zen Master and a forefather of the Rinzai school of Zen was Huang Po (d. 850). Zen Buddhism stresses the importance of enlightenment and the practice of knowing one's own mind through the practice of zazen, thought-free meditation. The Rinzai school stresses the use of a koan-a riddle which cannot be answered by the intellect-to bring the student beyond the mind into a state of sudden realization. Huang Po's lasting contribution was his non-dual philosophy called "Doctrine of the One Mind'
