Book Description

April 12 2005 Classics of Buddhism and Zen (Book 5)
Volume Five of Classics of Buddhism and Zen represents the broad spectrum of Cleary's interest in Buddhism—from Buddhist yoga and the Chinese Buddhist perspective on the I Ching to the most basic and universally loved of the Buddhist sutras, the Dhammapada.



The volume includes:

Dhammapada: The Sayings of Buddha
The famous collection of 423 verses of Buddhist wisdom that has been profoundly influential in every Buddhist school.

The Buddhist I Ching
The translation included in this volume is the only full-length interpretation of the I Ching by a Chinese Buddhist meditation master.

Stopping and Seeing: A Comprehensive Course in Buddhist Meditation
A monumental work written by sixth-century Buddhist master Chi-i. One of the most comprehensive manuals written on these two essential points of Buddhist meditation.

Entry into the Inconceivable: An Introduction to Hua-yen Buddhism
An introduction to the philosophy of the Hua-yen school of Buddhism, one of the cornerstones of East Asian Buddhist thought.

Buddhist Yoga: A Comprehensive Course
A landmark translation of the classical sourcebook of Buddhist yoga, the Sandhinirmochana-sutra, or "Scripture Unlocking the Mysteries," a revered text of the school of Buddhism known as Vijnanavada or Yogachara.

5.0 out of 5 stars The grand finale to a literary orchestra April 8 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When one finishes this volume after reading the other four volumes, you have read approx. 4000 pages of the most beautifully orchestrated thinking, musing and organized practice that one can imagine. A master work by Cleary of the giants of the human mind. Bravo! Inspiring. The reading requires attention to detail, but when over, one wishes for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential translations of the classic texts of Buddhism and Zen! April 24 2008
By Ted Biringer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Essential translations of the classic texts of Buddhism and Zen!

All Five Volumes of Classics of Buddhism and Zen contain the translations of some of the most essential literature of Buddhism and Zen.

Volume Five focuses mainly on the some of the classic source texts of Buddhism.

As the Collected Works of Thomas Cleary, these translations span his remarkably prolific career. Finally, they have become available in this beautiful, accessible five-volume set. This five-volume set includes nearly all of Thomas Cleary's translations (some have even been slightly revised and updated). They also include all the supplemental material included in the original individual translations, ie. glossaries, notes, indexes, Introductions, and Cleary's own insightful commentaries.

Only a handful of Thomas Cleary's Buddhist and Zen translations are not included in this set, primarily because their own bulk would necessarily constitute a volume unto themselves--these include, The Blue Cliff Record (trans. with J.C. Cleary), The Book of Serenity, and The Avatamsaka Sutra.

Volume Five contains:

Dhammapada: The Sayings of Buddha

The Buddhist I Ching

Stopping and Seeing: A Comprehensive Course in Buddhist Meditation

Entry into the Inconceivable: An Introduction to Hua-yen Buddhism

Buddhist Yoga: A Comprehensive Course

(You can find more info on the contents of these texts by "searching" them individually).

All five volumes are formatted for ease of access and reading. The set, or the individual volumes are a perfect gift for anyone with an interest in Zen or Buddhism, Eastern Religion or Eastern Philosophy. The Hardcovers are sturdy and finely bound, the Trade Paper are also made to last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book! July 20 2009
By William F. Zachmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Tom Cleary is not merely a translator. He is an insightful interpreter, working from inside the material, bringing the essential meaning to readers in the English language. His commentary is every bit as much an authentic addition to the literature of Zen and Buddhism as that of the classical commentators, inviting you to stop and see for yourself. Do you understand?
