The Lotus Sutra proclaims that a unitary intent
underlies the diversity of Buddhist teachings and promises that all
people without exception can achieve supreme awakening.
Establishing the definitive guide to this profound text,
specialists in Buddhist philosophy, art, and history of religion
address the major ideas and controversies surrounding the Lotus
Sutra and its manifestations in ritual performance, ascetic
practice, visual representations, and social action across history.
Essays survey the Indian context in which the sutra was produced,
its compilation and translation history, and its influence across
China and Japan, among many other issues. The volume also includes
a Chinese and Japanese character glossary, notes on Western
translations of the text, and a synoptic bibliography.
