Buddhism has made immense contribution and influence to Indian life and thought. That Buddha's words exercised a potent influence on the culture of India over the centuries can not be denied and it is expected that the literature in the major languages of India received an inspiration from some way or the other from Buddha and his teachings in their literary and philosophical treatment.

The present volume examines the relationship of Buddhism with a particular literature and see how it reacted to Buddhism and Buddhist principles in the different periods of its history.

The book also examines how Buddha's words were received in society by common people as reflected in the literary words and how it gave rise to a particular band of writers, composers and thought-leaders in different languages.
