Chinese Schools of Buddhism

What understanding of the relationship between “wisdom” and meditation is expressed through Huineng’s story of gaining enlightenment and his comments on the mental practice of meditation?

Besides the religious or philosophical meanings, is there a significant social significance to Huineng’s story as well?

What does the story of Huineng say about the similarities or differences of Chan to other varieties of Buddhist teachings that we’ve been studying, like the Pure Land or Tiantai schools? In looking at the collection
of sayings of the Chan Master Caoshan, “public cases” or going 0*, which became an important part of Chan’s method of cultivating enlightenment, is there some relationship with the story of Huineng or his
explanation of meditation?
