The book that launched American "Beat Zen!" In a 1954 letter to poet Allen Ginsberg (Howl, Kaddish), emerging literary giant Jack Kerouac (On The Road, The Dharma Bums)wrote that Dwight Goddard's A BUDDHIST BIBLE was "by far the best book" available on the subject of Buddhism. Its clear, reader-friendly elucidation of such important Zen Scriptures as The Diamond Sutra, The Prajna Paramita Sutra and The Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch opened the door for Kerouac's personal immersion into daily Zen practice, and through his many Buddhist-influenced novels and other writings, for the enlightenment of generations of "Beatnik's," Hippies and serious students of the Dharma to come.This New Paradigm Press edition has been carefully edited by author and thirty year Zen practitioner Lawrence W. Dolnick to update spelling and grammatical peculiarities to meet the needs of modern readers without sacrificing the informative richness and inspiring charm of the original.
