Item Description: John Murray General Publishing Division, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 192 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Today there are many Buddhists in the West, but for 2000 years the Buddha s teachings were unknown outside Asia. It was not until the late 18th century, when Sir William Oriental Jones, a British judge in India, broke through the Brahmin s prohibition on learning their sacred language. Sanskrit, that clues about the origins of a religion quite distinct from Hinduism began to be deciphered from inscriptions on pillars and rocks. This study tells the story of the search that followed, as evidence mounted that countries as diverse as Ceylon, Japan and Tibet shared a religion which had its origins in India yet was unknown there. British rule brought to India, Burma and Ceylon a whole band of enthusiastic Orientalist amateurs - soldiers, administrators and adventurers - intent on investigating the subcontinent s lost past. Unwittingly, these men helped lay the foundations for the revival of Buddhism in Asia during the 19th century and its spread to the West in the 20th. Charles Allen s book is a mixture of detective work and story-telling, as this acknowledged master of British Indian history pieces together early Buddhist history to bring a handful of extraoridinary characters to life.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Notes on the Ancient Geography of Burma (I) The Punnov da-sutta of the Samyutta-nik ya is found, almost word for word, in the Sanskrit version of the celebrated Legend of Purna, as translated by Burnouf from the Divyavadana. The P li Sutta does not give us any further information concerning this interlocutor of the Buddha; but the commentaries or Atthakath give, as a rule, the history of the persons mentioned in the texts. Consequently, while looking over the voluminous commentary on the Sannyutta, I have found therein the Legend of Punna (Sanskrit Purna) such as it is known to the Southern School of Buddhism, or, at least, that part of the legend which the commentators have thought fit to insert in their work: for if the sutta itself seems to be but an extract (unless one prefers to see in it the nucleus round which the legend later on developed itself), the commentary gives to the careful reader the impression that it (the commentary) is but an abridgment from which are omitted secondary incidents known to the Sanskrit version. Two points seem to me to admit of no doubt: on the one hand, the story existed before the evolution peculiar to Northern Buddhism, since the Purnavad na contains the P li sutta; on the other, it had remained quite popular amongst the Southern Buddhists up to the time of the redaction of the Sannyuttatthakatha, for this commentary introduces the two brothers in the story with the words ete dve Bhataro, without these two brothers having yet been mentioned.

Item Description: Wisdom Publications,U.S., United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 224 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the Buddha in ancient India to a nun in modern-day Los Angeles, Lives Lived, Lives Imagined crosses time, traditions, and cultures to present fascinating depictions of lives lived on the Buddhist path. Buddhist biographies come to life in many forms; they come from known poets and anonymous compilers; they are told by bards and even enacted by performers; they may also be autobiographies, either public or secret. Equally diverse have been the purposes they have served - as models for emulation, as origin stories for a particular community or lineage, or as narrative explications of doctrine. This book, a collection of papers presented at a conference at the University of Oxford, presents a multifaceted, multitradition portrait of Buddhist biographies. Part 1 deals with biographies of the Buddha, investigating Chinese and Pali sources and the Sanskrit dramatizations of Asvaghosa. Part 2 contains modern Buddhist life stories, including a rare autobiography from Burma. Part 3 explores the Tibetan tradition, including such well-known figures as Milarepa, Shakya Chogden, and Karmapa Mikyo Dorje. Together, these biographies and studies reveal the rich diversity of Buddhism s myriad incarnations over its long history and the dynamic scope of its thought and practice.

Item Description: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, 1971. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Second. The most universally adored of all the Hindu gods, Ganesa, the 'Lord of the Ganas' also occupies a pride of place among the gods of the Hindu pantheon. It was because of his popularity as a magnificent god that he was known by the various epithets Vinayaka, Vighnesvara, Siddhidata, Heramba, etc., which stress his benevolent nature and his other names viz., Vakra-tunda, Ekadanta, Akhu-ratha, Lambodara, Gajanana, etc. connote his unusual physical and other attributes. In her illuminating study, Ganesa, A Monograph on the Elephant-faced God, Alice Getty has covered not only the various iconographical features of this god, but has marshalled all the available evidence and shown how the cult of Ganapati originated and spread into not only the various parts of India but into foreign lands as well. The book is divided into eight chapters besides an Introduction by Alfred Foucher. The first four chapters deal respectively with the Origin of Ganesa and Ganesa in Indian literature, Ganesa in Iconography from the Hindu texts and images, Ganesa in Hindu sculpture and paintings and Ganesa in Buddhism. The remaining four chapters deal with Ganesa in the countries neigHard Coverouring India such as Burma, Siam, Indo-China, Java, Borneo, China and Japan. In this important work of scholarship and research, Alice Getty has collected a mass of carefully arranged information on Ganesa. This monograph is, therefore, indispensable as a work of reference for the scholars interested in Indian iconography and religion.

Item Description: Wisdom Publications, Boston, USA, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. From the Buddha in ancient India to a nun in modern-day Los Angeles, Lives Lived, Lives Imagined crosses time, traditions, and cultures to present fascinating lives and depictions of lives of those on the Buddhist path. Buddhist biographies come to life in many forms: they come from known poets and anonymous compilers; they are told by bards and even enacted by performers; they may also be autobiographies, either public or secret. Equally diverse have been the purposes they have served-as models for emulation, as origin stories for a particular community or lineage, or as narrative explications of doctrine. This book, a collection of papers presented at a conference at the University of Oxford, presents a multifaceted, multitradition portrait of Buddhist biographies. Part 1 deals with biographies of the Buddha, investigating Chinese and Pali sources and the Sanskrit dramatizations of Asvaghosa. Part 2 contains modern Buddhist life stories, including a rare autobiography from Burma. Part 3 explores the Tibetan tradition, including such well-known figures as Milarepa, Shakya Chogden, and Karmapa Miky?Dorje. Together, these biographies and studies reveal the rich diversity of Buddhism's myriad incarnations over its long history and the dynamic scope of its thought and practice. Printed Pages: 352.

Item Description: White Lotus, Rangoon, 1970. Hardcover. Book Condition: UsedGood. Dust Jacket Condition: no dj. Ray, Nihar-Ranjan (illustrator). First. The materials used in this monograph are mostly archaeological, but also include archaeologically substantiated literary sources so as to cover all relevant inscriptions, sculptures, paintings and monuments known within Burma. Apart from new materials that were hitherto unknown, many new interpretations of old materials have been proposed. This text reveals the prevalence of the Sarvastivada in Old Prome, the definite existence of Mahayanist and Tantric texts in the monastic libraries of Upper Burma, and the unrecognized representations of gods and goddesses belonging to the Mahayana tradition and its allied pantheons. The text also establishes that the Samanakuttakas, are identical with the Aris, both branded heterodox sects. It indicates the time and place whence the Mahayana and its allied cults penetrated Burma, as well as their continued existence long after the glorious reformation of Anawrahta in 1057-1058 AD. There are sufficient indications that the numerous followers of these sects played a significant role in the religious life of Upper Burma. The six chapters deal with: 1. Sarvastivada in Ancient Prome; 2. Sanskrit Inscriptions: Sanskrit Buddhist Texts; 3. Gods and Goddesses of Northern Buddhism; 4. The Ari sect and the Samankuttakas; 5. Testimony of Buddhist Monks; and 6. When and whence did Sanskrit Buddhism penetrate Burma?. book. Bookseller Inventory # T27043

Item Description: Cambridge Library Collection, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 230 x 153 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Laurence Austine Waddell (1854-1938) qualified in medicine and chemistry at Glasgow University and in 1880 embarked on a successful career in the colonial Indian Medical Service which took him to Darjeeling, Burma and Tibet, and eventually an academic post at Calcutta Medical College. In addition, Waddell studied Sanskrit and published extensively on Tibet (his books Among the Himalayas (1899) and Lhasa and its Mysteries (1905) are also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection). This landmark study of Tibetan Buddhism first appeared in 1895. Waddell cites earlier European scholarship, including that of Burnouf (also reissued), but emphasises that his book is based on original field research at temples and among the lay population. It covers the history of Tibetan Buddhism, its relationship with other branches of Buddhism, doctrine, places of worship, rituals and festivals, popular religion and the occult. It also includes around 200 illustrations and a substantial bibliography. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781108081801
