by Francis Dojun Cook

This book, well-known to most English-speaking fans of Buddhism, serves as a follow-up to Garma C.C. Chang's pioneering book on Hua-Yen (Huayan) entitled the "Buddhist Teaching of Totality". Both of these books serve to introduce the sophisticated Hua-Yen School's system of thought to English-speaking audiences on a non-scholarly level.
Huan-yen is a Mahayana school of Buddhism that emerged in the Late 7th and Early 8th Centuries in China.

Based on the Avatamsaka (Hua-yen in Chinese) Sutra, the school is known for its highly developed philosophy. Francis H. Cook's Huayen Buddhism gives a detailed account of this philosophical system and delves into the ethics and history of the school as well. Hua-yen is a cosmic ecology, which views all existence as an organic unity, so it has an obvious appeal to the modern individual, both students and layman.
