During his almost 120 year life span (1840-1959), Master Xu Yun (Empty Cloud), saw the end of imperial China, the short lived rise of the democratic republic, two world wars and the eventual rule of the Chinese Communist Party. Master Xu Yun, a true sage of the 19th and early 20th centuries, valiantly and almost single handedly kept orthodox Buddhism alive for the Asian people. He can be considered one of the last Buddhist patriarchs of China. His main disciples, took the mind-to-mind seal, passed down from patriarch to patriarch from the original master Shakyamuni Buddha, across the Pacific Ocean to America.
