Indian edition. One of the most important Mahayana Buddhist scriptures. This full and annotated translation will fill an important gap in the English language sources for the study of Mahayana Buddhism, and opens up the work of one of the century's major scholars of Buddhism, Etienne Lamotte.

This book comprises the first full English translation of Kumarajiva`s Chinese translation, with an extensive explanatory introduction and annotations. Within a framework provided by a dialogue between the Buddha and the bodhisattva Drdhamati, this sutra airs central issues of Mahayana Buddhism by means of philosophical discussion, edifying anecdote, marvellous feat, and drama. At its core is a description of the seeming conversion of Mara, the embodiment of all malign tendencies that obstruct advancement, and the prediction that he too will become a Buddha.

Concentration, or samadhi, is understood to denote the altered states attainable through Buddhist meditation techniques, in particular that in which discursive thought is allayed, the mind is calm and is capable of sustained awareness of a single object.
