Newly translated from the original

I.B. Hoener, David Snellgrove, Author Waley


A comprehensives Anthology of Buddhist Text has never before been anthology of Buddhist Texts has never before been attempted. The documents are distributed over so many languages that no one person could aim at knowing them all. More than a dozen collections of texts from the Pali Scriptures have been published and a fairly representative collection of Mahayana passages, translated by Prof. M. Winternitz, has appeared in German. But there is not corresponding publication in English for the Tantras, or for China and Japan. The overwhelming majority of the texts preserved in Sanskrit. Tibetan and the Far Eastern languages are still un translated. Even where English translations of Mahayana text exist, they were in most cases carried out at a time when the particular idiom of these texts was only imperfectly understood. Only in recent years has it become possible to translate accurately, and work done in the middle of the 20th century is likely to be greatly superior to anything done fifty or more year ago.

All the texts in this book have been newly transited from the originals. The book is designed as a sequel to Dr. Conze `s book Buddhism, which seemed to the give a sufficiently authentic account of the development of Buddhist thought to serve as a basic for a collection of texts. In this Anthology only texts are given. They have not been encumbered with notes, on the assumption that the reader can find all the explanation that may be required in Dr. Conze book. Considerable attention has been given to the problem of ensuring uniformity in the rendering of technical terms. A Glossary provides a lists of the main terms, with their Sanskrit equivalents. Ina number of cases we decided not to translate the term at all, as words such as Buddha, Dharma, Nirvana and other are likely in due course to be absorbed into the English language.
