Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A landmark publication when it first appeared in 1958, Buddhist Wisdom offered Western readers a unique combination of both The Diamond Sutra — one of the cornerstone texts of Mahayana Buddhism — and The Heart Sutra, perhaps the most important of all Buddhist texts, in a single authoritative volume. With its appearance in the Vintage Spiritual Classic series, this definitive translation by the Western scholar of Buddhism Edward Conze is now available to a new generation of readers.

Synopsis:

A landmark publication from its first appearance more than forty years ago, Buddhist Wisdom offers Western readers a unique combination of what Buddhists worldwide consider the holiest of holy texts — The Diamond Sutra and The Heart Sutra, or scriptures, ascribed to the early centuries of the first millennium.

The Diamond Sutra, or the "Perfection of Wisdom which cuts like a thunderbolt", is one of the cornerstone texts of Mahayana Buddhism and provides a summary of the core concepts of the Buddha. The Heart Sutra, perhaps the most important of all Buddhist texts, sets out to formulate the very "heart" or essence of perfect wisdom and is studied with special reverence in Zen monasteries and the Tibetan Buddhist lamaseries.
