Heart of Buddhist Wisdom a Translation of the Heart Sutra with Historical Introduction and Commentary
|Author: ||Fox, Douglas|
The lotus sutra contains elements indigenous to early Buddhism, but it also represents a new mystical vision. According to Fox, "It is a gem unsurpassed in its power to cast flashes of the clearest light Mahayana Buddhism has ever known."
"In this fine study . . . Fox displays not only his impressive grasp of Buddhist philosophy but a commendable ability to elucidate difficult terms and concepts found in a variety of Buddhist traditions. Ably translated, analyzed, and commented upon . . . recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and especially for theological seminaries." - Choice
