By Dwight Goddard, 677 Pages, Paperback.
A Buddhist Bible has introduced many beginning students to Zen Buddhism, including the Beat Generation's most famous storyteller, Jack Kerouac. Author's broadly inclusive selection of Mahayana, Pali, and Tibetan texts has offered generations of American readers an accessible introduction to the practice of Zen that has flowered in this country. This anthology is one of the building blocks of Buddhist practice in the west.
In this edition, a new forward by the distinguished Buddhist teacher and writer Robert Aitken reintroduces author's classic, highlights the book's continuing contributions to Zen Buddhism in America and offers new revelations about Dwight Goddard, the enigmatic compiler of A Buddhist Bible.
