Ashvaghosha The Awakening of Faith

Timothy Richard (Author)

This is the title of one of the most important religious books in the world, occupying, in the literature of the Higher Buddhism, a place not dissimilar to that of our own New Testament.

Its importance is increased when one considers that it formulates the fundamental doctrines of the Mahayana School, and was written by Ashvaghosha, one of the greatest poets of India, during the early part of the first century AD-a period when communication between East and West was reasonably frequent and extensive.

About the author

Timothy Richard

Dr. Timothy Richard, the translator of the work, was born in a small Welsh village in 1845. An excellent linguist, he won the prize for Hebrew early in his student days, and during 1868, while still at college, determined to visit China. Most of his life was spent working in that country, and he was deeply loved by all, from the meanest peasant to the Dowager-Empress herself. He died in 1919. His work has received the praise of eminent critics and scholars.
