More About Us

For those wondering about the name, Eagle Peak is a mountain in India, where Shakyamuni (also known as Siddhartha) expounded the Lotus Sutra and other teachings. The expression also is used to symbolize the Buddha land or the state of Buddhahood. Our tagline, “enlightened publishing for common mortals,” refers to the principle that while deluded one is a common mortal while once awakened or enlightened one is a Buddha. A buddha is not a supernatural entity, but an awakened human being.
