About Book:

Here is an outstanding work for which two eminent scholars of Chinese Buddhism separated by 2000 miles of ocean collaborated for the complete ten years during which the manuscript crossed the Atlantic four times. The author's aim has been to provide a key for the student with which to unlock a closed door and which does serve to reveal the riches of the great Buddhist thesaurus in China. In the absence of a dictionary of Chinese Buddhist Terms, it was a small wonder that the translation of Chinese texts has made little progress important though these are to the understanding of Mahayana Buddhism, especially in its Far Eastern development.
