Can anyone direct me to a bookstore online that sells pureland sutra's? I would like to have them in book form rather than downloads. Thanks! :namaste:

An outstanding translation by the Numata Center for Buddhist Translation and Research:

The Three Pure Land Sutras (Bdk English Tripitaka Translation Series)

http://www.amazon.com/Three-Sutras-Engl ... 716&sr=8-1

Nicely bound, hardcover.

There are also some good ebooks. Unfortunatly, you will find maybe something like 10-15 (is so much!) ebooks on pureland, only. I would like to see more than that.
