About Charles Patton

I am a lay translator of classical Chinese Buddhist texts. I believe that this literature should be rendered in modern English both as a way of preserving one of the world's great wisdom traditions for the future and to share that wisdom with a world desperately in need of it today. I have been studying and translating these texts part time for over 20 years.

A central belief that I have is that these texts should be freely available to inspire and educate the public. This work requires that I have sufficient income every month to cover my basic living expenses and have the comfort required to concentrate on it. Therefore, I ask that anyone who would like to see these texts translated into modern English to contribute whatever they can to this effort.

Thank you very much in advance!
