The Saddharma-Pundarika or The Lotus of the Tue Law is one of the nine Dharmas which are known by their tiles. These nine works, to which divine worship is offered embrace in the first, an abstract of the philosophy of Buddhism; in the seventh, a treatise on the esoteric doctrines; and in the seven remaining ones, a full illustration of every point of the ordinary doctrine and discipline, taught in the easy and effective way of example and anecdote, interspersed with occasional instances of dogmatic instructions. THIS volume contains a revelation of the state of things in the Present, as well as in the Past and the Future, a revelation derived from a virtually eternal source, so that the doctrine taught in it must be deemed valid not only for a certain spiritual brotherhood or church, but for the human race at large.
