Stories are ancient and wondrous tools with the mysterious power to transform lives. And the stories and parables of the Lotus Sutra-one of the world’s great religious scriptures and most influential texts-are among the most fascinating and dramatic. In this fun, engaging, and plain-English book, Gene Reeves-the translator of Wisdom’s critically acclaimed and bestselling edition of the Lotus Sutra-presents the most memorable and remarkable of the Lotus Sutra’s many stories and parables, along with a distillation of his decades of reflection on them in an accessible, inspiring and naturally illuminating way. The Stories of the Lotus Sutra is the perfect companion to Reeve’s breathtaking translation of this scriptural masterpiece as well as a thoroughly enjoyable stand-alone volume for those who want to bring the inspiring teachings of the bodhisattva path into their daily lives.

Gene Reeves, PhD (1933-2019), had done research and lectured on the Lotus Sutra worldwide for more than a quarter century. He was the head of Meadville Lombard Theological School, University of Chicago and retired from teaching at University of Tsukuba, where he taught Buddhism and American studies. He also served as an international advisor to Rissho Kosei-kai.
