Hi Chris;

Excellent book the one you mention "The Heart of the Buddha 
Teachings".  Some different traditions have adopted it due to its 
clarity and easy reading.  After that book comes the one with the 
tittle "Understanding our Mind" which is also the one I've been copying 
the fifty verses.  Don't worry too much if you find a little bit 
difficult to understand the verses.  Each of this verses are explained 
in the book mentioned.  I have been copying in that way to the website 
because I can't copy the whole book.  On the other hand, I was having 
fun to get indirectly into the debate about consciousness by inserting 
the verses.  But they were so engaged to make their points accross to 
each others that couldn't even see that they might have found some 
interesting answers to their queries by just stopping, reading in the 
awareness of their in and out breathing.

I'm not familiar with any other Vietnameses Masters in different 
tradition from TNH.  However, Within TNH tradition I have had the 
chance to meet and talk with some of them.

I have only ten verses left to copy and send.  I'll do that soon but 
not right now.

Thanks for writing and enjoy your day
