The Teaching of Buddha compiles basic teachings from the Buddhist canon, organized into convenient chapters. It provides an excellent introduction to the Buddha’s wisdom.
Inspired by the early twentieth century publication of a scholarly edition of the entire Chinese Mahayana canon, Buddhist leaders in Japan assembled this collection from Pali and Sanskrit sources to share the most basic Buddhist teachings. The first edition was in Japanese; the second in English.
Today the publication appears in over 45 languages, and Bukkyō Dendō Kyōkai has taken on the mission of maintaining, updating, translating, and distributing this work, with over 8.6 million copies distributed worldwide.
It was the wish of BDK’s founder, the late Rev. Dr. Yehan Numata, to see this book distributed widely, so that all may benefit from the Buddha’s teachings, regardless of race or creed. Our founder’s wish was continued into the next generation under the stewardship of Mr. Numata’s son, the late Rev. Toshihide Numata.
