?Not an intro to Buddhism?

by 310a on Apr 26, 2008

This is a fantastic approach to the Heart Sutra, though perhaps not as a 1st book on Buddhism. Like his previous work with the Diamond Sutra, the translation & commentary is coming from Pine's own practice. There are headings in both transliterated Sanskrit and Chinese characters, for those so knowledgeable. The explanations of the history & details in the text are also informative & valuable. It helps that this is about the shortest sutra in the Mahayana Buddhist canon - two pages. I'd say more, but Red Pine (and the Buddhas) can explain it to you better. Check out the book!
