What People Are Saying

Brother David Steindl-Rast
The essays of Marco Pallis...continue to be a rich resource for dialogue between Christians and Buddhists. Readers of Thomas Merton will welcome these writings by an author who influenced the thought of that monk...
OSB
Huston Smith
For insight, and the beauty insight requires if it is to be effective, I find no writer on Buddhism surpassing him.
author, The World's Religions
Joel Brereton
An honest and creative attempt to interpret Buddhist teachings and apply them to basic religious issues that are alive today, A Buddhist Spectrum will be an appropriate resource for courses in comparative religion.
asst. prof. of religion, Columbia U.
Kenneth Oldmeadow
The work of Marco Pallis radiates a distinctively Buddhist ambience. The tone is less combative and more amiable than that found in the work of some of the other traditionalists, but he is no less tough-minded.
