I’m a beginning Buddhist practitioner, and I heard about you through a fellow practitioner during a short visit to City of 10,000 Buddhas this past July. I bought your book and liked it very much (I find your advice of not using a cushion when meditating especially helpful).
Unfortunately I don’t have enough blessings to meet with you in person, as I just moved to Hong Kong from the US. When I was reading your Q&A session, I was very excited to see that you mentioned you had visited quite competent temples in Hong Kong. Could you please recommend to me some good temples in Hong Kong? I hope eventually to be able to find a GKA to guide me.
Thank you very much and I wish you a great Thanksgiving.
Bows in Respect,
I am very glad that you enjoy your meditation practice. The more skilled you become, the more benefits you will get out of meditation.
Our Chan Handbook provides the basic Chan techniques that I learned primarily from my late teacher, Great Master Xuan Hua, who is a Patriarch of the Gui Yang lineage.
You could also learn from the late Great Master Sheng Yi who is also a Gui Yang Patriarch. His disciples are good meditation practitioners who are not after fame and profit.
You could look them up as follows:

Peace and bliss in the Dharma.
