  • A Guide to the Threefold Lotus Sutra

    By Nikkyo Niwano

    This concise and readily understandable book is designed as a guide to one of the supreme scriptures of Mahayana Buddhism: the Threefold Lotus Sutra.  The first publication of the complete sutra in English (Weatherhill/Kosei, 1975) was widely acclaimed, and an ever-growing audience has been created for what is certainly among the greatest of the world's religious documents.

    Like the Bible and the Koran, however, the Threefold Lotus Sutra requires the explanations of a gifted teacher, and it is for this reason that Nikkyo Niwano has written his guide.  Giving careful consideration to the relation among the thrity-two chapters of the sutra, he not only outlines the contents but also explains the major points.  It is his hope that through his efforts an even greater number of people will become aware of the Way to enlightenment as it is revealed in the Threefold Lotus Sutra.
