Buddhist Scriptures, Paperback

Buddhist Scriptures Paperback



While Buddhism has no central text such as the Bible or the Koran, there is a powerful body of scripture from across Asia that encompasses the dharma, or the teachings of Buddha.

This rich anthology brings together works from a broad historical and geographical range, and from languages such as Pali, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese and Japanese.

There are tales of the Buddha's past lives, a discussion of the qualities and qualifications of a monk, and an exploration of the many meanings of Enlightenment.

Together they provide a vivid picture of the Buddha and of the vast nature of the Buddhist tradition.
