Description

This treasury draws from the most popular Indian, Tibetan, Chinese, and Japanese sources. Some of the earliest recorded sayings of the Buddha , passages from later Indian scriptures on the perfection of wisdom, verses from Tibetan masters , and songs in praise of meditation by Zen teachers are among the selections.

The book also includes traditional instruction on how to practice sitting meditation, cultivate calm awareness, and live with compassion. Jack Kornfield, one of the most respected American Buddhist teachers, has compiled these teachings to impart the essence and inspiration of Buddhism to readers of all spiritual traditions.

This revised and expanded edition of the Shambhala Pocket Classics version of the same title offers a broad array of teachings representing the full spectrum of the Buddhist tradition, including new selections on the role of women in early Buddhism.
