Welcome to the Buddhist Publication Society

For authentic literature on Buddhism

Mahayana Origins Explored

BPS’s latest offering, The Bodhisattva Ideal, is a must-have additon to the library of those who come to Buddhism from the West, who may wonder about the multiplicity of Buddhist schools, sects, schisms, and developments.

The authors cite Chinese, Sanskrit, Pali and Tibetan works, as well as recently-found birch-bark MSS. They demonstrate a refreshing uniformity in the teachings of the Buddha, and promote a viewpoint that avoids sectarian bias.
