Cultivating Original Enlightenment: Wonhyo's Exposition of the Vajrasamadhi-Sutra (Kumgang Sammaegyong Non)

Translated with an Introduction by Robert E. Buswell, Jr.

Wonhyo (617-686) is the dominant figure in the history of Korean Buddhism and one of the most influential thinkers in the Korean philosophical tradition. In Cultivating Original Enlightenment, the first volume in The International Association of Wonhyo Studies' Collected Works of Wonhyo series, Robert E. Buswell, Jr., translates Wonhyo's longest and culminating work, the Exposition of the Vajrasamadhi-Sutra. Wonhyo here brings to bear all the tools acquired throughout a lifetime of scholarship and meditation to the explication of a scripture that has a startling connection to the Korean Buddhist tradition. July 2007 / ISBN 978-0-8248-3076-2 / $37.00 (CLOTH)
