Hello :smile:

There are a lot of books about Buddhism, some good, some bad. And well, sutras are like infinite :rolling:

I was thinking on a reading plan, to fully introduce oneself to Buddhism, like this one: http://zmm.mro.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Reading-List.pdf

But that list is only oriented to Zen (leaving outside Pure Land, and other things that can go together).

So I was thinking, is that list good? Would you add or remove something? Are there a list but not only zen, but East Asian Buddhism (This is the one I'm interested, that's why I selected this subforum)?

Thanks :anjali:

Check out Buddhanet.net it has some decent pdfs on general Chinese Buddhism among other traditions. Don't get too hung up on schools.
