Sacred Texts Buddhism  
A BUDDHIST BIBLE
First Edition
BY DWIGHT GODDARD
[1932, Copyright not renewed]


This is the first etext of A Buddhist Bibleto appear on the Internet.One of the favorite books of the Beat writers, particularly theultimate 'Dharma Bum' Jack Kerouac, A Buddhist Bible has had ahuge influence on the growth of Buddhism in the English-speaking worldin the 20th century and beyond.This etext was scanned and proofed from anautographed copy of the first edition.We are indeed fortunate that this book slipped into the public domaindue to a lack of timely copyright renewal.
The first edition, which was tightly focused on sourcedocuments of Zen Buddhism,was self-published in Vermont by Goddard and had 316 pages.Subsequently, a second revised and greatly enlarged edition of677 pages was publishedin 1938 by E.P. Dutton (New York), and later republished by Beacon Press.The second edition, which has been in print ever since (see box to right),covers a much wider range of Buddhist texts includingSouthern Buddhism, some related documents such as the Tao te Ching,and modern texts.The reprint also includes introductions by Robert Aitken and Huston Smith.
Goddard, particularly in this first edition, took the best availabletranslation of key documents and edited them heavily to eliminaterepetitious passages and extraneous material.So this is a readers edition, not a critical edition, of these texts.However, he did nothing to water down or simplify the message of the sutras;quite the contrary.One can read this book repeatedly and still come back with new insightson each reading.
--John Bruno Hare, August 28th, 2004.
