The Perfection of Wisdom in One Hundred Thousand Lines
This is one of the lengthiest and most important texts in the collection known as the Words of the Buddha–standing at the heart of Mahāyāna Buddhism–and yet has never before been translated into English.
Prajñapāramitā, personified in female form, is worshipped as the mother of the buddhas, and this scripture–retrieved from the nāga realm–is the lengthiest Prajñapāramitā text in the human world, and is thus considered the most exhaustive account of the Buddha’s teaching on Vulture Peak over a period of–some say–thirty years.
