By Numata Center

Complete in one volume, here is one of three Buddhist commentaries written in classical Chinese that have been attributed to Japan’s Prince Shōtoku (574–622). The author comments on the Śrīmālā Sutra (also published by BDK) and provides an updated view of its themes of "the womb of the Buddha" and "one vehicle" (both concepts suggesting that all sentient beings have the ability to become Buddhas).

Arranged and Published by Bukyo Dendo Kyokai (BDK) and Numata Center for Buddhist Translation and Research. 2011.
