His book, The Buddhist Self: On Tathāgatagarbha and Ātman (University of Hawaii Press), is an examination of Indian teaching about the tathāgatagarbha (otherwise the presence of one’s “Buddha-nature”) and the extent to which different Buddhist texts and authors articulated this in terms of the self.


Chris tells me his copies arrived from Hawaii on 23 December, so that some copies at least have arrived in the UK.

Congratulations to Chris.
