This edifying book gives an exhaustive survey of Buddhism in principles and practice. Such an authentic, rich and varied collection on Gotama Buddha has never appeared before.

Buddhism has a place of its own in Indian culture. Since Independence India is undergoing a cultural renaissance and the principles of life enunciated by the immortal Buddha about 2500 years ago have now become more than a living force to modern India and the greatest challenge to the present-day world.

The present volume gives a rational interpretation of the great sage's teachings. After a brief survey of Georama Buddha's life, the succeeding chapters explicitly deal with the basic principles of ideal individual and social life, doctrinaire and spiritual aspects of Buddhism and representative selections form his outstanding sermons, parables and legends.
