About the book:

Employed as a text for the instruction of Buddhist priests, this volume defines the essentials of Mahayana Buddhism, a liberal and theistic branch of the faith comprising sects chiefly in China and Japan. It discusses how humans can transcend their finite state to partake in the life of the infinite and describes practices and techniques to assist believers in the awakening and growth of faith. The text features the most developed form of tathagata-garbha, or Buddha-matrix teachings, and was specifically written for those who prefer a brief and pithy presentation rather than extensive discourse.
