A Buddhist Spectrum was Marco Pallis' last book. This book is an in-depth survey of many aspects of Buddhism. Pallis had a particular talent for anticipating where Westerners might misunderstand the Buddhist message, and he carefully demonstrates the universal ideals of this great tradition in a way that is both clear and instructive to modern readers in the West.




“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.”
Kenneth Oldmeadow, author of The Betrayal of Tradition: Essays on the Spiritual Crisis of Modernity

“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.”
Joel Brereton, Columbia University

“For insight, and the beauty insight requires if it is to be effective, I find no writer on Buddhism surpassing him.”
Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions: Our Great Wisdom Traditions
