"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
