Buddhist Spectrum Contributions to Buddhist-Christian Dialogues by Marco Pallis

A BUDDHIST SPECTRUM is at once one of the most readable works on Buddhism and a major work on comparative religion and living spirituality. It is the fruit of thought and meditations of a man whose authoritative exposition during several decades of religions in general and Buddhism in particular, especially in its Tibetan form, have had a profound influence upon many scholars and practitioners of religion in both East and West. The ten essays found in A BUDDHIST SPECTRUM cover a wide range of topics which are both specific to Buddhism as well as being pertinent to other religious traditions, most notably Christianity. Collectively they represent a crowning achievement of one of the most eminent traditionalist authors, and the only one of these who was formally attached to Buddhism. Pallis' writing, like Buddhism itself, possesses at the same time the gentleness of a flowing stream and the implacable rigour of a mountain. Like all of Pallis' books, A BUDDHIST SPECTRUM combines the wisdom gained from a lifetime of scholarship with the luminous insights of a seasoned spiritual traveller.
