Book: Setting Out on the Great Way

Chapter: Sara Boin-Webb: Translator of Buddhist Texts

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.24509


If and when the definitive history of Buddhism in the United Kingdom
is written, space should be allocated to an unassuming yet highly
competent translator of key Buddhist texts. The author's late wife Sara Boin-
Webb – to use her professional surname – possessed the necessary
background training and ability to go beyond the world of academia
and reach those whose understanding of Buddhism would be enriched
by the revelation of practical and philosophical writings hitherto
inaccessible to all but the cognoscenti.
