New Mahayana: Buddhism for a Post-Modern World

by Akizuki ryomin
Translated by James w. Heisig and Paul L. Swanson


"Akizuki combines the earthy humanity of a zen master, the passion of a committed practitioner, and the precision of a scholarly mind to give us a picture of Mahayana Buddhism that is both informative and engaging"

                                                                 Paul Knitter, Xavier University

"Akizuki brandishes his sword and wreaks havoc in the spirit of the Zen dictum: 'If you meet the Buddha, kill him!'"

                                                   Ruben Habito, Perkins School of Theology

"A Superb translation, enriched by helpful and detailed notes, makes this English version of Akizuki's book a particularly valuable resource for introducing university students to the current realities of Mahayana Buddhism thinking in Japan"

                                                           Gilbert Johnston, Eckerd College
