Hello all, I have found a reference to Huineng (Hui Neng) that described him as blind.
I do not recall having heard of that before.
Would anyone know if there are grounds one way or the other for thinking that Huineng (the sixth Chinese Ch'an Patriarch, I mean) was literally blind, unable to have any visual perception?
Where can there more on this be found?
