Volume 5: 華嚴 Hwaŏm II: Selected Works

ByRichard D. McBride II

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book contains works from Korea’s Hwao˘m tradition traditionally considered by scholars to be outside the mainstream of Korea’s Hwao˘m intellectual tradition. The foundational scripture of the tradition, the Avataṃsaka-sūtra or Huáyán jing 華嚴經, often called the Flower Garland Sūtra in English, provides a compelling vision of reality and a comprehensive Buddhist worldview. Few books have been written on the Hwao˘m (Huáyán in Chinese) tradition in English. This is perhaps due to the difficulty of rendering Hwao˘m doctrines, theories, and concepts, which encompass the full spectrum of Mahāyāna Buddhist intellectual thought, into readable and understandable English. The Hwao˘m tradition has been and continues to be of seminal importance to Korea’s intellectual and practice-oriented Buddhist traditions.
