This book opens a window onto the daily life of Gold Mountain Monastery in San Francisco during the early years of Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua s ministry in America. In the summer of 1968, the Master began a series of lectures on the great Mahayana sutras. His audience consisted of young Americans drawn to him by luck or circumstance. Once there, he instructed them, cajoled them, entertained them, scolded them, fed and housed them, in short pushed them forward in spiritual practice. While unable to be present in the heart of San Francisco in the late 60 s, everyone one can benefit from these timely teachings on such subjects as - study habits - teaching and transforming - master disciple relationship - karmic retritution - monastic life style - afflictions - cultivation
