Synopsis

Synopsis

Volume Five of Classics of Buddhism and Zen represents the broad spectrum of Cleary's interest in Buddhism—from Buddhist yoga and the Chinese Buddhist perspective on the I Ching to the most basic and universally loved of the Buddhist sutras, the Dhammapada.



The volume includes:

Dhammapada: The Sayings of Buddha
The famous collection of 423 verses of Buddhist wisdom that has been profoundly influential in every Buddhist school.

The Buddhist I Ching
The translation included in this volume is the only full-length interpretation of the I Ching by a Chinese Buddhist meditation master.

Stopping and Seeing: A Comprehensive Course in Buddhist Meditation
A monumental work written by sixth-century Buddhist master Chi-i. One of the most comprehensive manuals written on these two essential points of Buddhist meditation.

Entry into the Inconceivable: An Introduction to Hua-yen Buddhism
An introduction to the philosophy of the Hua-yen school of Buddhism, one of the cornerstones of East Asian Buddhist thought.

Buddhist Yoga: A Comprehensive Course
A landmark translation of the classical sourcebook of Buddhist yoga, the Sandhinirmochana-sutra, or "Scripture Unlocking the Mysteries," a revered text of the school of Buddhism known as Vijnanavada or Yogachara.
