Description

While Buddhist has no central text comparable to the Bible or Koran, there is a powerful body of Scriptures from across Asia that encompasses the dharma, or the teachings of the Buddha. In this rich anthology, eminent scholar Donald S. Lopez, Jr. brings together works from a broad historical and geographical range, and from such languages as Pali, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese, and Japanese.

There are tales of the Buddha’s past lives, a discussion of qualities and qualifications for a monk, and an exploration of the many meanings of enlightenment. Together they provide a vivid picture of the Buddha and of the vast and profound nature of the Buddhist Scriptures tradition.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
