Preface to the New Edition
The Buddhist Seriptures is a collection of some of the most basic and essential Buddhist teachings as proclaimed by the Buddha himself. The book is nicely interspersed with stories related to the development and growth of this world conquering system. The author has chosen his topics well and has presented them quite sincerely one must agree that the Buddhist scriptures are classics of philosophy which have met no match in their thousands of years of existence.
Once the basics of this complex subject are understood then it is time to go on into the worlds of Mahayana, Hinayana and Zen. For in all truth the Buddha himself tried to put forth the simplest of doctrines for the common man to follow and practice in his everyday life. The author has done this amply in this collection of the gems from the Buddhist Scriptures.
