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.
