Product Details


“One of the foremost contemporary translators of classical Buddhist and Taoist literature.”—Library Journal

“There is no doubt in my mind that Thomas Cleary is the greatest translator of Buddhist texts from Chinese or Japanese into English of our generation, and that he will be so known by grateful Buddhist practitioners and scholars in future centuries. Single-handedly he has gone a long way toward building the beginnings of a Buddhist canon in English.”—Robert A. F. Thurman, Tricycle
