A Forest of Pearls from the Dharma Garden, Volume II Hardback
- Other Formats
A Forest of Pearls from the Dharma Garden (Fayuan zhulin, Taisho 2122) is a large anthology of excerpts from Buddhist canonical sources and historical records, arranged by theme.
The collection offers a comprehensive and distinctive reading of the Buddhist canon, with a focus on practice.
An extraordinarily rich account of Buddhist practices is offered, though the rationale for the choice of the one hundred topics around which the discussion is organized is not always clear.
Volume II is the second of nine planned volumes in the translation of the work, of which the first three have been translated by Koichi Shinohara.
Volume II includes Fascicles 8-12, Chapter 5.
