Description: This is the title of one of the most important religious books in the world, occupying, in the literature of the Higher Buddhism, a place not dissimilar to that of our own New Testament. Its importance is increased when one considers that it formulates the fundamental doctrines of the Mahayana School, and was written by Ashvaghosha, one of the greatest poets of India, during the early part of the first century AD-a period when communication between East and West was reasonably frequent and extensive. Not only have Buddhist sages considered it of the utmost worth-it has also been counted one of the five most valuable Buddhist scriptures by eminent Western scholars, and has been quoted and praised by such writes as Aldous Huxley, Dr. E.Y. Evans-Wentz Tibetan series published by the Oxford University Press), E.A. Burtt, Christmas Humphreys, Maurice Percheron, Dr. Edward Conze, and others. Should we decide to estimate the value of books by the number of those adhering to the doctrines expounded therein, then, after the Bible, the Quran, the Confucian Classics, and the Vedas, this volume ranks not only as one of the five most important books of Mahayana Buddhism, but fifth among the sacred books of the world. Much published work offers material for a study of the apparently common ground of Buddhism and Christianity, but few shed greater light than this reasonably short work by the first and finest full-length biographer of Gautama the Buddha.

The Soul or Mind of the True Model is the great essence of the invisible and the visible worlds. As to the nature of this One Soul, it is the same in all forms. To think it is different in different forms is only a false notion of the world. Once we penetrate beyond forms, it is discovered that all the different forms of the universe are not real differences of soul at an, but different manifestations of one real power, hence it has always been impossible to speak adequately, to name correctly, or to think correctly of this One Soul, the real essence of things, which is unchangeable and indestructible. We therefore name it the TRUE ESSENCE OR THE TRUE LIKENESS OR THE TRUE REALITY OR MODEL.

The Awakening of Faith in the Mahayana is a classic of East Asian Buddhism. Its concept of faith, however, is not the same as that of Western religions. The books' title may also be translated as The Generating of Confidence in the Mahayana. Confidence or trust is generated as a result of examining the Mahayana Buddhist teachings, which are concisely summarized here. This book is said to have been written for those who find the wordiness of extensive discourse wearisome, and who prefer a brief treatise with a lot of meaning. Doctrinally, it presents the tathagata-garbha or Buddha-matrix teachings in their most developed form.This abstruse text is translated here by the distinguished D.T. Suzuki. The translation by Yoshito Hakeda published elsewhere is made from the Chinese version of Paramartha, while this one is made from the Chinese version of Siksananda.
