Dharma Pearls is a long-term project to translate Chinese Buddhist texts to modern English that began in the late 1990s...
The intended audience for these translations is both English and bilingual readers, students, and scholars interested in the source texts. To this end, an English reading guide, a Chinese-English glossary, and topic indices are planned to help readers navigate the language and concepts of the source material.
All translations, essays, web design, and images are the work of Charles Patton unless otherwise noted. You can make suggestions, ask questions, offer sponserships, or submit corrections by email or by opening an Issue at the Dharma Pearls Github repository.
Copyright protection is waived for non-profit use of English translations found on this site. See the copyright policy for more details.
