Skilful Means' is the key principle of the great tradition of
Mahayana Buddhism. First set out extensively in the Lotus Sutra, it
originates in the Buddha's compassionate project for helping others
to transcend the ceaseless round of birth and death. His strategies
or interventions are 'skilful means' - devices which lead into
enlightenment and nirvana. Michael Pye's clear and engaging
introductory guide presents the meaning of skilful means in the
formative writings, traces its antecedents in the legends of early
Buddhism and explores links both with the Theravada tradition and
later Japanese Buddhism. First published in 1978, the book remains
the best explanation of this dynamic philosophy, which is essential
for any complete understanding of Buddhism.
