Karma and rebirth by Christmas Humphreys ( )
38 editions published between 1942 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cause of this degradation isprobably twofold; first, the general tendency ofWestern thought to materialize whatever spiritualprinciples swim into its ken, and secondly, theincreasing dep

Exploring Buddhism by Christmas Humphreys ( Book )
19 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Buddhist field of knowledge is now so vast that few can master all of it, and the study and application of its principles must be a matter of choice. One may choose the magnificent moral philosophy of Theravada, the oldest school, or the Zen training of Japan; or special themes such as the doctrine of No-self, the Mahayana emphasis on compassion or the universal law of Karma and Rebirth. But the intense self-discipline needed for true spiritual experience calls for specialization of subject and technique. In this reissue, first published in 1974, Christmas Humphreys takes us on a personal

Mahayana Buddhism : a brief outline by Beatrice Lane Suzuki ( Book )
4 editions published between 1963 and 1972 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this outline, the author confines herself to the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, which accepts many of the doctrines found in all forms of Buddhism. Mahayana accepts many of these doctrines but holds some of them less important. What is most important in Mahayana is Enlightenment, freedom from Illusion, and the aspiration after Buddhahood, and this not only for a few wise monks but for all beings. Mahayana is the religion of the Buddhists of the North and East of Asia and, as such, deserves to be studied and appreciated."--Description from amazon.com
