Thank you for inquiry. I am not worthy of your praise. My late Chan teacher, Great Master Xuan Hua had many very competent disciples who understand Chan as well. I waited and waited for them to write a book on Chan so that I can use it to train my students. Eventually I decided to write it myself because I could no longer wait.
I’ll ask one of my students to get in touch with you to discuss how we can help speed up your meditation progress. That way, we can make up for the lost years if you are willing to work hard.
