The Mind In Early Buddhism
The Mind In Early Buddhism
Description
About the Book

This book is an attempt to comprehend the Buddhist concept of mind (citta in Pali) when sectarianism was not exertive yet n the Pali literature. This book is based for its materials on the Tipitaka whose dating and stratification - especially the Suttapitaka which is most substantial of the Buddhist canonical literature and best able to serve a sense of purity - are examined in view that the earlier a particular text is, the more authentic it should be.

The mind in question is worked upon as a technical term and a concept. Its lexical meanings in general and applied ones in the Buddhist canonical contest are surveyed. How the fundamental and condensed shades of citta figure in the Buddhist system as well as in the contemporary Brahmanic ones is sketched out. With the supplement of lexical elucidation, tabular illustrations and doctrinal relevance the work should virtually exhaust all the cases of conceivable citta in the Suttapitaka and Abhidhammapitaka so long as its literary occurrence is concerned. The matters inherent of psycho-philosophical interest, however, will be elaborated on with further analysis and deeper ideation. This book should be found useful to students and the scholars alike.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
