From the Buddhist side - one should read the Dhammapada and the Tripitaka (Sanskrit)/Tiptaka (Pali), or Three Baskets.
Unfortunately, Tipitaka alone is larger than all other major religions' sacred texts, combined (see here), and even larger than the Communist canon, and much of it is simply unavailable in English, except maybe in some ancient translations that you can only find in big libraries. You'd have to stick to Dhammapada. Also, if you're interested in Zen, check out Shobogenzo.
