This is an excellent, indeed award winning, translation of one of the most popular and influential of Mahayana Buddhist scriptures.

The Threefold Lotus Sutra consists of three sutras. The first, "The Sutra of Innumerable Meanings", is considered by many to be a kind of prologue to the Lotus Sutra. Next comes the Lotus Sutra itself, also known by the longer title of "The Sutra of the Lotus Flower of the Wonderful Law". Lastly comes "The Sutra of Meditation on the Bodhisattva Universal Virtue" which is considered by many Mahayana sects to be a continuation (an epilogue) of the Buddha's teachings found within the Lotus Sutra. This work also includes a fine, and useful, glossary.

Not only is this an excellent work for practicing Buddhists, it will also be of interest to anyone with an interest in the classics of world religion.

Highly recommended.

Another fine translation is Lotus Sutra: A Contemporary Translation of a Buddhist Classic

What can be said about the lotus sutra. It is a classic.
It undoes you as you read it. It works like paint. Put it on the wall and you don't worry will it cover the wall. It just works. The lotus sutra enlightens. I also read The Lotus Sutra (Translations from the Asian Classics)

The Three Fold Lotus Sutra reveals the ultimate truth of the Buddhas teachings in all its splendor and wonderment. This is an award winning translation by Kosei publishing Co. In this marvelous translation, in the most essential section the (16th chapter) the truth of the Buddha's Eternal life, is revealed, which states that his life is Eternal from time without beginning. And within this Three Fold Lotus Sutra it is further revealed that all living beings possess the ten realms hell to buddhahood, and that all can attain Buddhahood through upholding this Law Flower Sutra. Explaining that all ten realms contain one another so there exists a 100 realms in one mind. Each of these 100 realms, furthermore, consists of "three factors", that is to say, living beings, the environment in which we live, and the five elements of living beings, (matter, perception, conception, volition, and consciousness). It also possesses the ten aspects or ten factors ( form, nature, substance, function, action, cause, condition, effect, reward, and the ultimate equality of these aspects). In "The Threefold Lotus Sutra" we find in the preface great scholars validity of this sutra and their testimony of the declaration of Shakamuni's Eternal life. As this translations completely reflects its great majesty. The lotus Sutra is the culmination of the Buddha's teaching. Beginning with the three chapters of the Innumerable meanings. Then there is the main discourse which consists of 28 chapters where the greatest revelation ever preached is revealed, and then the wonderment of the final chapter of "The Sutra of Meditation on the Bodhisattva Universal Virtue.Read more ›
