First printing. Quarter inch by quarter inch chip along bottom edge of front wrapper, ink number on front flyleaf. 1972 Trade Paperback. 110 pp. A landmark publication when it first appeared in 1958, Buddhist Wisdom offered Western readers a unique combination of both The Diamond Sutra -- one of the cornerstone texts of Mahayana Buddhism -- and The Heart Sutra, perhaps the most important of all Buddhist texts, in a single authoritative volume. The Diamond Sutra, or the Perfection of Wisdom, which cuts like a thunderbolt, is one of the cornerstone texts of Mahayana Buddhism and provides a summary of the core concepts of the Buddha. The Heart Sutra, perhaps the most important of all Buddhist texts, sets out to formulate the very heart, or essence of perfect wisdom and is studied with special reverence in Zen monasteries and the Tibetan Buddhist lamaseries.
