This is the review I posed on AMAZON so, I know, it sounds like an Advert. :shrug:

Decades ago The Ratnakuta or Jewel Heap Collection of Mahayana Sutras was publishes as A Treasury of Mahayana Sutras .... ALL of it was translated at the time, but only 40% of the sutras were released in the Treasury edition. That was a heartbreaking. It is a priceless compilation nevertheless, (see: A Treasury of Mahayana Sutras: Selections from the Maharatnakuta Sutra by Garma C.C. Chang - reasonably priced here on Amazon.)

Thanks to Lama Tony Duff we now have here astutely presented and scrupulously translated 2 previously unavailable crucial Sutras of the Buddha to Come - Maitreya.

This is the Real Deal, not New Age nonsense. And we also have a Vajrayana Buddhist commentary by one of Tibet's most respected.

Source of the Prayer of Maitreya, this represents money and study and meditation well spent.

Thank you for this information, Leo. I'm looking forward to reading the book.
