Buddhist Cosmology brings many Buddhist sources to the attention of Western scholars for the first time. Even those who may disagree on minor points cannot disregard this pioneering work.

To today's reader, Buddhist teachings about the universe's structure may appear to be absurd. But Professor Sadakata finds many similarities between the cosmology of modern science and that of Buddhism. He also shows us how, even today, this ancient philosophy can help us lead more fulfilling lives. By clearly explaining difficult themes, Professor Sadakata has opened the door to Buddhist cosmology.
