Editorial Reviews

"This splendid collection of classic and modern Buddhist texts provides insight into the teaching and practice of Buddhism."- Publishers Weekly



"Among many good introductions to Buddhism, this one stands out for seeing to it that its principles and practices are presented-through either translations or original commentaries-by masters who have dedicated their lives to teaching Westerners. The result is a book which, while faithful to the Buddhist tradition, speaks unusually effectively to an English-speaking audience."-Huston Smith, author of The World''s Religions
