Passages Selected from the Buddhist Sacred Books

and Translated from the Original Pali into English by

Henry Clarke Warren


Atheneum / New York



            Henry Clarke Warren’s Buddhism in Translations was first published in 1896. It appeared as Volume Three of the Harvard Oriental Series, a series of books founded by the generosity of Warren and at that time edited by teacher and friend Charles R. LAN man. The book long remained the most popular volume of the Series and was reprinted time and again. In the course of the additions were a prefatory note by LAN man, a memorial of Henry Warren’s life, and a descriptive list of other volume of the Series. In the present student’s edition all this supplementary matter has been excluded. Since the cost of publishing has trebled since the time of the first edition, other changes have been made in format and binding. But not a word of Warren’s text has been omitted or changed.

            Warren’s book remains an admirable introduction to than basic teachings of Buddhism. Buddhism studies, it is true, have advanced since Warren’s time; many more texts have been edited and translated. Particularly is this true with regard to Mahayana or Northern Buddhism, with which Warren did not deal. But no one  has organized this new material with the skill which Warren showed in dealing with the material available in his day. The picture of Theravada or Southern Buddhism given by Warren’s selections is singularly well balanced. And his renderings have the special merit of being readable as well as scholarly.

            Warren’s attitude toward Buddhism was one neither  of acceptance nor of disapproval. He disapproved of only open thing: the forming of opinions about Buddhism or India or Asia at second and third hand. It was to help Westerners form an open-ion of Buddhism at close acquaintance that he wrote this book. And it is for the same purpose that his book is now reissued.
