The Sutra of Golden Light has captured imaginations and ignited ideas for centuries, but it remains as mysterious as it is beautiful. With skill and clarity, Sangharakshita translates the images and episodes of the scripture in an exploration filled with practical insights.
Retaining the potent magic of the original sutra, he shows how this ancient text can help us through a range of contemporary dilemmas, such as ecology and economics, culture, morality, and government, while all the time showing that if we wish to change the world, the most important step we can take is to start with ourselves.
Sangharakshita is the founder of the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order, a worldwide Buddhist movement with centers across Europe, Asia, and the United States. With a wealth of teaching experience, he is also the author of over forty titles, all of which are published by Windhorse Publications.
