Acvaghosha's Discourse on the Awakening of Fait in the Mahayana


Acvaghosha is a treasured philosopher of Buddhism. His treatise on The Awakening-of Faith is recognized by all Northern Buddhist schools and sects as orthodox and used even to-day in Chinese translations as a text-book for the instruction of Buddhist priests. The original Sanskrit text has not been found as yet, and if it should not be discovered somewhere in India or in one of the numerous libraries of the Buddhist viharas, it would be a great loss; for then our knowledge of Acvaghosha?s philosophy would remain limited to its Chinese translation. This book is the translation done by Teitaro Suzuki that was first published in 1900.
