The Gospel of Buddha
Available in Stock
Paul Carus (1852–1919) was a leading figure in Modern Buddhism, the movement that paved the way for the religion’s Western flowering during the 1960s. By assembling an anthology of ancient texts in authentic yet readable English prose he hoped to put the Buddhist canon on an equal footing with the Bible. This facsimile of the 1915 edition is preceded by a 101-page introduction in which monk Martin Verhoeven sets the work in its historical context.
