Buddhist Wisdom by Edward Conze

Book Description

A landmark publication when it first appeared in 1958, Buddhist Wisdom offered Western readers a unique combination of both The Diamond Sutra - one of the cornerstone texts of Mahayana Buddhism - and The Heart Sutra, perhaps the most important of all Buddhist texts, in a single authoritative volume. With its appearance in the Vintage Spiritual Classics series, this definitive translation by the Western scholar of Buddhism Edward Conze is now available to a new generation of readers. Conze, who until his death in 1979 was a powerful force for introducing Buddhism to the West, translated and wrote the introduction to this breakthrough edition in which extensive commentary is interleaved with the text for the easiest possible appreciation of the core ideas on the page. The result is a work of permanent value, a classic for anyone interested in the way to wisdom.

Author Biography - Edward Conze

Edward Conze (1904-1970) was born in England but was educated in Germany through postdoctoral studies in Bonn and Hamburg. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Conze returned to England and taught for the better part of three decades, until 1960, at Oxford and London Universities. His subjects included psychology, comparative religion, and philosophy. A lifelong commitment to the translation, explication, and propagation of the classic scriptural texts of Buddhism was the hallmark of his achievement.
