"The Sacred Books of the East" contains 50 volumes of Asian religious texts translated into English, first published between 1879 and 1910. The texts span a wide range of religions including Taoism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Zoroastrianism, and more. This volume concentrates on Buddhist and the Mahayana texts in particular. Contents include: "The Buddha-karita of Asvaghosha: Books I-XVII", "Index of Proper Names", "Notes and Corrections", "The Larger Sukhavati-Vyuha", "The Smaller Sukhavati-Vyuha", "The Vagrakkhedika", "The Larger Pragna-Paramita-Hridaya-Sutra", "The Smaller Pragna-Paramita-Hridaya-Sutra", etc. Friedrich Max Müller (1823 - 1900) was a German Orientalist and philologist famous for being amongst the founders of Indian studies in western academia. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this classic volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
