By Marco Pallis
A Buddhist Spectrum is Marco Pallis' last book. This book is an in-depth survey of many aspects of Buddhism, and demonstrates his profound understanding of all dimensions of the tradition, a love of its ambience and the lands where it thrives, and his ability to present these as living realities to Westerners. Pallis had a particular talent for anticipating where Westerners might misunderstand the Buddhist message, and he carefully highlights the universal ideals of this great tradition in a way that is both clear and instructive to modern readers in the West.
A Buddhist Spectrum contains an insightful introduction from renowned scholar, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and a foreword by Br. Wayne Teasdale.
