A more critical approach to Buddhist scripture
Rigorous scholarship on Buddhist scripture is way behind e.g. study of the Bible. Tons of great, bracingly unorthodox stuff on this blog.
I do have preferred interpretations of the texts I read. However, the aim here would not be to defend or promote my particular view. Rather I wish to create a resource for those who read and think about Buddhist scripture. I'm trying to pitch this a the level of educated Buddhist readers and university undergraduates studying Buddhism or comparative religion. I hope it will be generally useful to anyone who wants to go beyond passively consuming Buddhist ideology when they read Buddhist scripture.
