Wisdom Beyond Words: The Buddhist Vision of Ultimate Reality
Sangharakshita

Ever since the Buddha’s lifetime, people have been trying to express the ultimate meaning of Buddhism in a form that makes complete rational sense. The Prajnaparamita or ‘Perfection of Wisdom’ teachings offer a giddying counterbalance to this exercise, and a sophisticated slap in the face to anyone undertaking it. Emerging 2000 years ago as the core-teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, texts such as the Ratnaguna-samcayagatha, the Diamond Sutra and the Heart Sutra were to give new impetus to the ideal of the Bodhisattva, one whose entire energies are dedicated to the attainment of enlightenment for the sake of all beings.

This book is by Sangharakshita. You might also be interested in The Complete Works of Sangharakshita, available in hardback, paperback and/or eBook volumes.

    It’s a terrible shame this book is out of print. 2nd hand Copies are for sale at ridiculously high prices elsewhere so there is obviously (thankfully) a market for it. I am reading on Kindle and was going to buy 2 print copies ( one for a friend). It draws together and clarifies so much from my years practising as a “Buddhist”. It’s very inspiring and also awe inspiring. Such an important book ought to be in print.
