This first complete English translation of two works by Zen scholar D.T. Suzuki introduces Emanuel Swedenborg and compares Swedenborgian thought to Buddhism. The first work stresses Swedenborg’s message that true spirituality demands an engagement in this world; the second compares Swedenborg’s description of heaven to the paradise of Pure Land Buddhism.
“…important for anyone who is concerned with inter-religious dialogue and the meaning of… visionary mysticism.”
