Product Description


In this study ... Guo Cheen has made a substantial contribution to contemporary Buddhist Studies. Chengguan's commentaries on the Avatamsaka/Huayan Sutra were among the most important endeavors in Chinese Buddhist philosophy. Having them now available in English translation extends our realization that the philosophy of 'interrelatedness' is one of the greatest gifts from the Buddhist tradition to our moment in time. -- Dale S. Wright, Gamble Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies/Asian Studies, Occidental College

About the Author

Guo Cheen is a Mahayana Buddhist nun who founded The Compassion Network in Seattle, Washington. She is also a co-editor of Women, Spirituality and Transformative Leadership:Where Grace Meets Power.

Only shadows on the walls 10 Dec. 2014
By a. bernstein - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Although this is a worthy effort, may I be forgiven for saying that this book requires some painstaking editing. In its current form, it can only convey an overall impression of the material it is attempting to present, as it contains too many translation errors, inconsistencies and lapses in coherence—all avoidable. It is to be hoped that Rev. Guo will be inspired to make the necessary revisions in a subsequent edition.

The Analysis Makes All the Difference! 9 May 2014
By Maggie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The introduction chapters enrich the reading of the translation of Chengguan's commentaries and the Flower Garland Sutra itself!
I will be sending this as gifts!
