Outlines of Mahayana Buddhism

Authored by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki

Saisetz Teitaro (D.T.) Suzuki was a Japanese professor of Buddhist philosophy who is credited with having spread interest in Zen Buddhism to the United States in the 1950s. A notable translator of classical works of Sanskrit, Chinese, and Japanese literature , Suzuki was also the author of several highly influential works explaining Zen philosophy to Western Audiences-in particular ESSAYS IN ZEN BUDDHISM, AN INTRODUCTION TO ZEN BUDDHISM, and MYSTICISM: CHRISTIAN AND BUDDHIST.

In OUTLINES OF MAHAYANA BUDDHISM, Suzuki takes on the formidable task of providing comprehensive introduction to the thought of the Mahayana school of Buddhism. Drawing analogies with Western philosophy and literature, the text offers readers a lucid and engaging introduction to the major themes in Mahayana thought. Although Mahayana doctrines can often be difficult to understand, Suzuki writes in a way that is totally accessible to newcomers to Buddhist thought.
