This is the PDF and EPUB versions of the English edition of “The Mentor of Buddha”, which compiles standard mentors from the Buddhist canon, organized into hassle-free chapters. It was published by Bukkyō Dendō Kyōkai (The Society for the Promotion of Buddhism), a Buddhist company based in Japan.
Reserve Description: Influenced by the early twentieth century publication of a scholarly edition of the whole Chinese Mahayana canon, Buddhist leaders in Japan assembled this collection from Pail and Sanskrit sources to share the most fundamental Buddhist teachings. The very first edition remained in Japanese; the second in English.
Today the publication appears in over 45 languages, and Bukkyō Dendō Kyōkai has actually handled the objective of keeping, upgrading, translating, and distributing this work, with over 8.6 million copies dispersed worldwide.It was the wish
of BDK’s creator, the late Rev. Dr. Yehan Numata, to see this book distributed extensively, so that all may take advantage of the Buddha’s mentors, regardless of race or creed. Our founder’s wish was continued into the next generation under the stewardship of Mr. Numata’s child, the late Rev. Toshihide Numata.
