The Awakening of Faith
is one of the basic texts of Mahayana Buddhism, used by most of its major schools. The popularity of the text in East Asian Buddhism is well attested by the numerous works written on it throughout the ages in China, Korea, and Japan. It is hoped that this translation of the work will prove of value to Western readers in increasing their understanding of the basic tenets and practices of Mahayana Buddhism.
This book includes extensive commentary within the text to illuminates the meaning of many passages in this important treatise.
