THE PATH OF THE BUDDHA (Buddhism Interpreted By Buddhists)
THE PATH OF THE BUDDHA (Buddhism Interpreted By Buddhists)
Description
About the Book:

This book presents Buddhism from the Buddhist point of view. It is an earnest attempt of eleven devout Buddhist scholars to describe the beliefs and practices of the Buddhist world twenty-five centuries after the Buddha.

The need for such a book grew out of conversations among Fellows of the National Council of USA on Religion in Higher Education. It was agreed that a fuller understanding of the leading non-Christian religions requires books written by men speaking from the point of view of their own faiths, and edited by a Westerner to make the meaning clear to readers brought up in the Greek-Hebrew-Christian tradition.

Bhikkhu J. Kashyap of India has contributed the first chapter on the origin and expansion of Buddhism. U. Thittila of Rangoon wrote the second chapter on the fundamental principles of Theravada Buddhism. Balangoda Ananda Maitreya of Ceylon who wrote the third chapter was recommended as a man who can speak for all Theravada countries. Prof. Yamagu, the author of the fourth chapter on the development of Mahayana Buddhist beliefs is one of the great masters of Mahayana thought. The fifth chapter on Buddhism in China and Korea has been contributed by Prof. Tsukamoto, President of the Institute of Humanistic Studies at the University of Kyoto. In the next chapter Tibetan Buddhism is described by Lobsang Phuntsok Lhalungpa, who now lives in India, with the help of two scholarly Lamas. The seventh chapter on Buddhism in Japan includes four sections, of which the first is a general introduction by Prof. Hanayama, the second on the Shui sect by Prof. Ishida, the third on Zen Buddhism by Prof. Masunaga and the fourth on Nichiren Buddhism by Prof. Kubota. The last chapter on unity and diversity in Buddhism is by Prof. Nakamura who undertook the difficult task of pointing out the common elements and the points of divergence in Buddhism, both Theravada and Mahayana.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
