The Collected Works of Korean Buddhism

Postby Indrajala » Mon Aug 13, 2012 12:55 pm

A new collection of academic translations of Korean Buddhist works has been published and made available for free download. Quite a lot of material and all high quality. Easy to access .pdf files, too.

See the following:

Treasure trove. Thanks Huseng! Love the new outfit.
If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true of false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.

Thanks Huseng.

And thanks to the translators, editors, sponsors, and publisher for making this thirteen-volume English-language edition of The Collected Works of Korean Buddhism possible.

Have yet to find a source to buy any of the actual books - any suggestions?

Here is another site to download an individual volume: ... ?album=115

EDIT: This, from UCLA Buddhism Center, answers my question above:

Since the project was funded by a grant that only covered the publication of a limited number of paper copies of the texts, the texts are also being released in PDF format. A hard copy of the full set may be found in the UCLA Young Research Library.
A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25
