1884. This work is volume XXI of the Sacred Books of the East series. The Saddharma-Pundarika, one of the Mahayana sutras, is perhaps the single most important Mahayana Buddhist work. It was originally composed in India, with some sections written as early as the beginning of the Christian era. The Lotus is held in esteem by the Northern schools of Buddhism and by the Chinese and Japanese Buddhists, particularly Tendai and later developments. Described as the most eminent of all the sutras, the crown jewel in which all Buddha laws are succinctly taught, the Lotus is a keystone in the education of every serious Buddhist.
