Characters The Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha

Free download õ The Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha 100 Edwin Arthur Burtt É 0 Review E source with this collection of original documents edited with commentary by a Cornell University professor of philosoph. This book is a collection of translations of texts that expound Buddhist doctrine as it developed over time It is not a summary of Buddhist doctrine As such it could be used as introductory material but those readers that had absolutely no background in the study of Buddhism would have to rely on the glossary footnotesand introductory passages Even then they would run the risk of finishing a text without fully understanding the significance of what they had read The book gains its value from Burtt s reliance on actual texts and his generally judicious selectivity of those texts You actually get to read a selection from the Sermon at Benares instead of reading about that sermon I really liked that Burtt took the time to delve into Theravada Doctrine as many scholars in describing the different paths often take a sort of retroactive Mahayana leaning stance where Theravada is the self centered path but the true path comes later in the Bodhisattva ideal in Mahayana Of that section I particularly the two passages that givethe answer of Theravada Buddhism to uestions that troubled the Mahayana thinkers I thought Burtt was being very fair in doing this as Mahayana literature including some of the selections that follow are filled with references to the idea that Theravada is an incomplete or less effective form of the Buddha s teachings because it focuses on the individualThe book does not cover anything on Tibetan Buddhism and some readers have expressed their dissatisfaction with this fact There are two reasons for this First the book was published in 1955 but the Tibetan Diaspora didn t begin to spread until 1959 and so a lot of the texts had not been translated a lot of the teachings had still not been revealed a lot of the teachers were still in their homes in Tibet and conseuently Tibetan Buddhism at that time was less accessible and less popular than it is today Second the book focuses on the Theravada and Mahayana traditions and Tibetan Buddhism is a Vajrayana Tantric tradition something that we still have a bit of difficulty describing today Burtt couldn t just put a small explanatory paragraph before those selections like he did with Pureland and so the book would had to have been much longer and expensive to cover a topic that wasn t necessarily that popular or accessible at the time Overall the translations were adeuate Certain sections were a little dense Parts of the Mahayana Philosophy section were difficult to read but other than those few sections the texts were pretty enjoyable
