Thank you for sharing this beautiful collection. :anjal:

I will remember Peter Harvey’s The Buddha and Buddhist Sacred Texts (which is part of Discovering Sacred Texts) as a wonderful article to share with non-Buddhist friends and family and with Buddhism-curious acquaintances.

(I am somewhat reminded of the Harvard Religious Literacy Project, which, though not focused on scripture, provides the lay reader with nuanced introductions to some of the world’s major faiths, including Buddhism.)


You’re welcome! :anjal:
