Read this for a college class. Nice job explaining the split between the mahayana and therevada schools. ( )

In this book, E. A. Burtt has collected early discourses, the Dhammapada, and some other basic writings of Buddhism. These original texts have been translated and edited. Burtt has also included additional and very beneficial commentary. The book particularly addresses the Theravada and Mahayana traditions of Buddhism. Some of the writings are very difficult to understand, but having such a collection of Buddhist writings is valuable.
