Críticas The enduring value of John Robert Shaw's translation is to make this critical text available for the first time to a large western audience so that this discussion can begin to move forward. It is my prediction that Crazy Ji has only just begun his own journey to the West. --Kung Fu Tea blog This admirable translation by John Robert Shaw maintains the boisterous flavor of the original tales salted as they are with rogues and bandits women both beautiful and plain pompous wealthy who are brought down a notch or two magicians and potions that heal and kill and an array of eccentric characters of which Ji Gong is but one albeit the most important. --The Zen Site blog Reseña del editor Follow the brilliant and hilarious adventures of a mad Zen Buddhist monk who rose from humble beginnings to become one of China's greatest folk heroes! Ji Gong studied at the great Ling Yin monastery an immense temple that still ranges up the steep hills above Hangzhou near Shanghai. The Chan (Zen) Buddhist masters of the temple tried to instruct Ji Gong in the spartan practices of their sect but the young monk following in the footsteps of other great ne'er-do-wells distinguished himself mainly by getting expelled. He left the monastery became a wanderer with hardly a proper piece of clothing to wear and achieved great renown in seedy wine shops and drinking establishments! This could have been where Ji Gong's story ended. But his unorthodox style of Buddhism soon made him a hero for popular storytellers of the Song dynasty era. Audiences delighted in tales where the mad old monk ignored or even mocked authority defied common sense never neglected the wine yet still managed to save the day. Ji Gong remains popular in China even today where he regularly appears as the wise old drunken fool in movies and TV shows. In Adventures of the Mad Monk Ji Gong you'll read how he has a rogue's knack for exposing the corrupt and criminal while still pursuing the twin delights of enlightenment and intoxication. This literary classic of a traveling martial arts master fighting evil and righting wrongs will entertain Western readers of all ages!
