9788170300823: A Comparative Study of Jainism and Buddhism

This book on Jaino-Buddhist religion places stress on the common factors on the religious life of the Jaina and Buddhists. On comparing the literature of both, the writer has come to the conclusion that coming in close association each sect has either borrowed from the other or both have derived material from a common source. He has shown the similarities between old Jainism and old Buddhism and proved that both were one and the same at their base; that the old Buddhism was nothing but old Jainism and that Gautama Buddha must have preached the same philosophy that was preached by old Buddhism. This is a reprint of the 1932 classic.

Book Description Sri Satguru Publications/Indian Books Centre, 2003. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Jainism is older than Buddhism. Vardhaman Mahavira, the last Tirthankara of the Jainas was the contemporary of Gautama Buddha. The sects organised by the two Leaders flourished for centuries together, before and after the Christian era. Although there were differences in the conduct of their Monks in as much as the Jaina saints remained naked and the Buddhist monks wore cloths, there were closer resemblances between the two. Contents: Introduction List of Works Consulted 1. Nirvana, Moksha or Liberation 2. Existence of the Soul 3. The path of Nirvana or Liberation 4. Karmas and Their Fruits 5. Ahimsa 6. Why Jainism and Buddhism are the Same? This book on Jaino-Buddhist Religion places stress on the common factors on the Religious life of the Jaina and Buddhists. On comparing the literature of both, the writer has come to the conclusion that coming in close association each sect has either borrowed from the other or both have derived material from common source. The work is an analytical account of Jainism and Buddhism. It is full of references. The Author has exploited all the relevant material in discussing the subject. He has tried to show similarities between old Jainism and old Buddhism and prove that both were one and same at their base; that the old Buddhism was nothing but old Jainism and that Gautama Buddha must have preached the same Philosophy that was preached by old Jainism. He has shown that the Nature of Nirvana and its path as found in Buddhist Pali Books are not different from the nature of Nirvana and its path as given in old Jaina works. He has also thrown light on their concept of Karma and Ahimsa and shown reasons why the two sects are so alike. As no records of actual words of the Teachers of both these sects are preserved and the speeches placed in their mouths are only the summaries of what they had said, he has attempted to colloborate the oldest records in the main outlines by the Pauranic Tradition and other sources. He has tried to trace the influence of these sects upon Jewish and christian Religions also. Printed Pages: 328. Bookseller Inventory # 16146
