The Rise and Decline of Buddhism in India
The Rise and Decline of Buddhism in India
Description
About the Book:

There is no dearth of books and monographs on Indian Buddhism but a related account of the rise, development of Buddhism and its decline has not been attempted. The present work is a modest contribution in this direction. It provides an in depth study of Indian Buddhism and traces its history, development and decline and places it in proper perspective. Divided into fourteen chapters covering three major themes: introduction, progress and decline of Buddhism, the book discusses its various stages. It based mainly on primary sources, focuses attention on different aspects of Buddhism that helped it to rise and to reach at the zenith of its glory.

About the Author:

Dr. Kanai Lal Hazra is reader in the Department of Pali at the University of Calcutta. He is a Specialist in South-East Asian history, culture and civilization. His published works are: History of Theravada Buddhism in South-East Asia; The Buddhist Annals and Chronicles of South-East Asia; Royal Patronage of Buddhism in Ancient India; Buddhism in India as Described by the Chinese Pilgrims; and The Adi Buddha.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
