Volume 11: 梵網經古迹記 Exposition Of The Sutra Of Brahmā’s Net

ByA. Charles Muller

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This volume has much to offer to students and practitioners of Buddhism in the English-speaking world. First and foremost, it contains the first scholarly translation of the full Mahāyāna Sutra of Brahmā’s Net into English Of greatest interest to most, of course, will be the “Mahāyāna Prātimoksha” (“Precepts Manual”) that comprises the second half of the sutra; but the sutra as a whole represents the documentation of a vitally important stage in the development of Mahāyāna thought. At the same time, the reader will have access to the magisterial commentary on this sutra by Taehyeon. Taehyeon’s was the only major commentary to treat the entire sutra, and was regarded by a large swath of East Asian Vinaya experts as being the most thorough and balanced exegesis ever written on the text.
