A comprehensive anthology of Buddhist texts was never before attempted. The documents were distributed over so many languages that no one person could aim in knowing them all. Even where English translations of Buddhist texts existed, they were in most cases carried out at a time when the particular idiom of these texts was only imperfectly understood. Only in recent years has it become possible to translate accurately these texts. Present work was originally published in 1954 under the same name and was the first work in English for the Mahayana texts, Tantras and texts from China and Japan translated from the originals. Printed Pages: 322.
