View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The early Buddhist texts introduce us to a being called Māra who appears at critical junctures of the Buddha's career in order to deflect him from his mission. Māra is the Buddhist counterpart of Satan and represents the inseparable union of Desire and Death. The paper examines the various records of the Buddha's encounters with Māra in his role as the Tempter. Ananda W.P. Guruge is a retired Sri Lankan diplomat and a scholar in the fields of Indology and Buddhist Studies. He is the author of over thirty books, the most recent a complete translation of the Sinhalese chronicle (The Mahāvaṃsa) and a biography of King Asoka.
