In this brilliant new translation and commentary on The Diamond Sutra--one of the sublime wisdom teachings of Mahayana Buddhism--Mu Soeng integrates this ancient wisdom teaching with current scientific and psychological thought. His clear and readable commentary traces the connections between these teachings and contemporary theories of quantum reality, explores the sutra within the framework of Buddhist meditation practices, and provides a comprehensive historical survey of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. Mu Soeng's goal throughout is to reveal the inspiration and wisdom of The Diamond Sutra to today's reader in an accessible, engaging, and modern manner.

Review: The Diamond Sutra: Transforming the Way We Perceive the World

User Review  - Jackson - Goodreads

I read this for a Philosophy class at Oregon State and it was interesting. Much of it was confusing and seemed to contradict itself, but I've read that it takes time to really sink in. That being said, it's worth reading for sure. Read full review
