Over the course of more than two millennia, Buddhism developed a canon of sacred texts that is vast in scope, geographical origin, and linguistic variety. The largest selection of these scriptures ever to appear in English has just been published as part of the Norton Anthology of World Religions. In this presentation, Jack Miles, editor-in-chief of the Norton volumes, and Donald Lopez, editor of the Buddhism section, offer their reflections on how and why Buddhism developed into a religion of global scope and significance.
