Buddhist Bible has had a huge influence on the growth of Buddhism in the English-speaking world in the 20th century and beyond
The first edition, which was tightly focused on source documents of Zen Buddhism, was self-published in Vermont by Goddard and had 316 pages. Goddard, particularly in this first edition, took the best available translation of key documents and edited them heavily to eliminate repetitious 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 insights on each reading.
I hope this app help you to get more information about Buddha teachings. Here you will find: The Lankavatara Sutra, The Diamond Sutra, Sutra of Transcendental Wisdom and Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch
