The Chinese Master Han Shan
A summary of the autobiography of the Chinese Master named Han Shan has arrived to us, which is worth commenting about for the best comprehension of this 1965-1966 Christmas Message.
The Master Han Shan was born in Chuan Chia in the beautiful Chinese region of Nanking. In dreams, the Divine Mother announced to a very humble woman from that region that she would conceive a child, and indeed she conceived a beautiful child that was born the 12th of October of 1545; that child was the great Chinese Master named Han Shan.
When the child was a few years old, he caught a very critical sickness that nearly killed him. His humble mother, filled with faith, prayed to the Divine Mother Kundalini (Guanyin), promising Her with all of her heart that if the child recovered she would place him in a monastery and allow him to become a monk. Thus, when the child recovered, his beloved mother registered his name (“Heshang,” Buddhist monk) at the Longevity Buddhist Monastery.
