Buddhism in Translations

Price : $20.75
ISBN # : 9788120811171
Author : Henry Clarke Warren
pages: 520
Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Motilal Banarsidass
Published : 2002

Here is a work that aims at presenting 'different ideas and conceptions' which are 'found in Pali writings'. In the words of henry Clarke Warren, the author of the volume: 'Translation has been the means employed as being the most effectual... The selections of the first chapter are on the Buddha; next follow those which deal chiefly with the Doctrine; while others concerning the Order and secular life constitute the closing chapter of the book.' The uniqueness of the volume lies in the selective presentation of the materials and their organization. Introductory notes preceding discussion of each chapter, amply annotated, add to its originality. Appendixes and the Index form special features. This volume will be welcomed by students as well as researchers of Buddhism.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Tuesday 01 August, 2006.
