Shan-tao's Commentary on the Kuan wu-liang-shou-Fo ching

Wholeness Lost and Wholeness Regained (August 1994)
Forgotten Tales of Individuation from Ancient Tibet

"Guenther is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting, most thought-provoking, and most learned interpreters of Buddhist philosophy and psychology in the world. I like the way he draws on the experiential vocabul...(Read More)
 
 
The Little Clay Cart
The Little Clay Cart (January 1994)
An English Translation of the Mrcchakatika of Sudraka as adapted for the stage by A.L. Basham
Arvind Sharma - Editor

"This is one of the best Sanskrit plays and it is known very widely. Basham's excellent adaptation makes the play more accessible in English than any previous rendering I know. It takes the Sanskrit play closer to where an English speaking person can empathize with its characters and present it on the stage. The Sanskrit original has a great deal of variation of diction among its different characters according to their high and low status, and wheth...(Read More)
