Mysticism, Christian and Buddhist
by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki
[1957, copyright not renewed]
This is a study of Buddhist mysticism, contrasted and compared
with Christian mysticism, particularly the writings of Meister Eckhart.
Suzuki explores Buddhist and Christian concepts of infinity, eternity and
the transmigration of souls.
This book explains many difficult Buddhist concepts,
including kono-mama, a state of spiritual contentment.
Also included is extensive material about the 'Pure Land' school of Zen
Buddhism of Renno Shonin, particularly translations of source material.
