9788121501675: Living Thoughts of Gotama the Buddha

This scholarly yet highly readable volume offers a concise introduction to the tenets of Buddhism. A brief biography and an overview of doctrine is followed by a series of Pali texts, attributed to Buddha himself. Rich in parables and observations, the texts are thematically organized around the founder, his prophesies, training, and the transcendent state.

Book Description Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1999. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Reprint. The two most remarkable facts about Buddhism are: it has almost ceased to exist in India-the land of its birth, while claiming about 255 million adherents in other parts of Asia; its founder Siddhartha, more well-known as Gautama Buddha, paid no importance to ceremonies and rituals, did not say a word on the supremacy of one God, yet people flocked to him and became his disciple. Even today its popularity is on the increase. What exactly is this ageless and timeless appeal of Buddhism? A.K. Coomaraswamy and I.B. Horner have given the answer in this book-The Living Thoughts of Gotama the Buddha. Commencing with the life sketch of the great teacher, they take up every aspect of his teaching for clear elucidation.
