The Way to Buddhahood

 1,690.00

The Way to Buddhahood is a compendium of two thousand years of Chinese study, practice, and authentication of the Buddha’s teachings. This is one of those rare classics that authentically captures an entire Buddhist tradition between its covers.

“This fine translation…is a most welcome addition to the small English language archives of modern Chinese Buddhism…. The foremost leader of Chinese Buddhism’s intellectual resurgence, the monk Yin-shun, is both a scholar and an original thinker of the first order. Drawing upon the whole broad range of Buddhist thought-but especially upon the Madhyamaka (“Middle Way”) tradition of Nāgārjuna, Candrakirti, and Tsongkhapa-Yin-shun has emphasized the rationalism and humanism of Buddhism while also bringing traditional Buddhist scholarship into invigorating dialogue with modern, critical Buddhist Studies.” — Professor Robert M. Gimello, Asian Studies and Religious Studies, University of Arizona

“Master Yin-shun… is the foremost living Chinese Buddhist authority. The Way to Buddhahood, his most widely read work, has become part of the basic curriculum in many Chinese Buddhist schools and academies.” — Professor Whalen Lai, Religious Studies, University of California-Davis

VENERABLE YIN-SHUN, born in 1906 to a farming family in China, left lay life to become a Buddhist monk in 1930. He presently lives and teaches at a monastery in central Taiwan.
