Transforming the Way We Perceive the World

Mu Soeng

In this brilliant new translation and commentary on The Diamond Sutra—one of the sublime wisdom teachings of Mahayana Buddhism—Mu Soeng integrates this ancient wisdom teaching with current scientific and psychological thought. His clear and readable commentary traces the connections between these teachings and contemporary theories of quantum reality, explores the sutra within the framework of Buddhist meditation practices, and provides a comprehensive historical survey of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. Mu Soeng’s goal throughout is to reveal the inspiration and wisdom of The Diamond Sutra to today’s reader in an accessible, engaging, and modern manner.
