Won Buddhism, one of the major religions of modern Korea, was established in 1916 by Pak Chung-bin (1891-1943), later known as Sot'aesan. In 1943 Sot'aesan published a collection of Buddhist writings, theCorrect Canon of Buddhism (Pulgyo chongjon), which included the doctrine of his new order. Four years later, the second patriarch, Chongsan (1900-1962), had the order compile a new canon, which was published in 1962. This work, translated here asThe Scriptures of Won Buddhism (Wonbulgyo kyojon), consists of theCanon(a redaction of the first part of thePulgyo chongjon) and the analects and chronicle of the founder known as theScripture of Sot'aesan. The present translation incorporates critical tenets from the 1943Canonthat were altered in the redaction process and offers persuasive arguments for their re-inclusion.
