bookshelves: eastern-classics, religion

Watson's translation is clear and convincing, as usual. The Lotus Sutra is a collection of mostly devotional sermons, and Watson renders the poetry beautifully. This probably isn't the best place to pick up the basics of Mahayana Buddhism, but culturally it's important.
