I have a book, almost written like a text book, on Buddhism from the Theravada tradition. It coversThe Foundations of Buddhism
things like karma, rebirth, nibbana, the Perfections, etc.
What I'm looking for is a book that presents these kind of teachings from the Mahayana perspective.
Or at the least will give me a basic overview of the Mahayana school of Buddhism; kinda like a primer of sorts.
Any recommendations will be appreciated.
by Gethin is not strictly about Mahayana but will give you a good understand of general principles. Another excellent general survey is Buddhist Religions: A Historical Introduction
by Richard H. Robinson.
