Summary:"In this volume, Sangharakshita introduces us to the strange and wonderful world of three of the best loved Mahāyāna sutras ... From the transcendental critique of religion and the means of unification offered by the Vimalakīrti-nirdeśa to the light shed on economics, ecology and politics by the Sūtra of Golden Light, and the vision of life as a journey offered by the White Lotus Sūtra, these commentaries offer a unique and transformative perspective on the value of human existence."--Book jacket
