Edward Conze (1904-1979) has been called "the foremost Western scholar of the Prajnaparamita literature" and it seems to me that he has in his various works (such as, for example, his Buddhist Wisdom Books and to a lesser extent in the present book) gone as far as it is possible for a scholar to go in explaining these difficult sutras to a. modern audience. I also feel that his many translations of the Prajnaparamita far surpass most others in their clarity and beauty. 4 people found this helpful.

Complements and completes Edward Conze's lifework translation of The Perfection of Wisdom in 8000 Lines. The various Prajnaparamita, Heart and Diamond Sutras or Perfection of Wisdom texts are compelling masterpieces of double-talk which gravely misinterpreted the Buddha's highly ambiguous teachings on sunyata (emptiness), yet ironically established the superior path of the Bodhisattva, the Eastern counterpart of the Christian Saint.

Thereby they practise wisdom, the highest perfection . But when the notion of suffering and beings leads him to think: 'Suffering I shall remove, the weal of the world I shall work!' Beings are then imagined, a self is imagined, -The practice of wisdom, the highest perfection, is lacking. He wisely knows that all that lives is unproduced as he himself is; He knows that all that is no more exists than he or any beings. But if someone else had copied this book, the Mother of the Sugatas, From which come forth the Guides with the ten powers, Would bear it in mind, revere it with flowers and unguents, -An infinitesimal portion of his merit would have those who had given worship to the Stupas.

The Perfection of Wisdom Sutras, The Prajnaparamita, is a collection of about forty texts. They were composed in India between approximately 100 BC and AD 600. Those contained within this volume are among the shorter ones; they are also some of the most well known such as The Heart Sutra and The Diamond Sutra. The Prajnaparamita texts are central to the Mahayana, the Great Vehicle tradition of Buddhism which today includes the Zen and Tibetan traditions. They are a magnificent work which offer guidance to those who wish to plumb the depths of their own mind and come face to face with the reality of existence by realising the truth of the Buddha's deep teachings on Emptiness and Great Wisdom. Dr Edward Conze (1904-1979) was the author of many books and the translator of much of the Prajnaparamita texts. He served on the faculties of several universities in Britain and the United States inlcuding Oxford, London, and California. Not only was he a great Buddhist scholar but also a serious practitioner, and his translations are very highly regarded.
