I haven't read Guo Gu's translation, but really enjoyed Charles Muller's translation with commentary by Kihwa.

There's the translation itself from his website:

And the one with the commentaries would need to be bought.

Thanks Dan, the sheng yen/guo gu is my go to version for at least over 10 years, venerable Huifeng (e-sangha) pointed me towards it as the "best" translation so I stuck with it. Never heared of Guo Go at the time I noticed Guo Go as a translater only last year, pretty funny I "knew" him longer then I knew I knew :lol:

There really is no separate line of texts.
The Zen sect is a Mahayana Buddhist sect so all of the sutras at least, if not all of the texts. The Tannisho and the Letters of Renyo here are Pure Land texts, but at a deep level have many connections to Zen. If you don’t need the Chinese text I would stroll over to the BDK America site to download free copies.http://www.bdkamerica.org/bdk-tripitaka ... -downloads

If you mean the Record of Linji it is not at BDK, but is easily found elsewhere http://info.stiltij.nl/publiek/meditati ... sasaki.pdf
