The Birth of Indian Psychology and its Development in Buddhism
The Birth of Indian Psychology and its Development in Buddhism
Description
About the Book:

The Birth of Indian Psychology and its Development in Buddhism, is a fascinating history of Psyche from the early Indian sacred literature - Vedas, Brahmanas, Upanishads and the Tripitaka (three baskets), with special reference to Sutta-pitaka which consists of the five (Digha, Majjhima, Samyutta, Anguttara, Khuddaka) Nikayas. The teachers of that remote period did not feel the need for coining a new word to study the mind and its behavior, for they realized that abstract truth has no lasting influence on mankind; for a study of the mind is inseparable from that of religion, as the purpose of such a study was the salvation of man. In their strenuous pursuit of the spiritual principles of unity, the sages of the Aranyaka period reached the apogee of their vision in the concept of Atman, which "barred the vision of human life to more than the visible world of sense." Beyond this, they could not venture. Here early Buddhism came to the rescue of the aspirants, by totally by-passing the then current speculations surrounding the Atman idea with its five-fold formulae known as the Khanda, where natural human desires are not frowned upon and man is not "being" but "becoming."

This book was first published in 1914. Time has not succeeded in eroding its importance in the field of Buddhist studies. The lucidity of thought and argument add to its charm. The scholar shall be enthralled and the general reader enlightened.

About the Author:

Mrs Rhys Davids (27 September 1857 - 26 June 1942), a well-known authority on Buddhism, undertook the difficult task of translating from original Pali a number of Buddhist works which justifiably earned her a place among the foremost scholars of Buddhism. She was a pupil of Prof. T.W. Rhys Davids whom she later married. Besides her translation of the Dhamma-Sangani under the title of A Buddhist Manual of Psychological Ethics, she undertook the translation and interpretation of a number of other works were published under her guidance. She was also the author of a number of books and articles: the more well-known are: Buddhist Psychology, translation of Thera-Therigatha in English verse entitled Psalms of the Early Buddhist Brothers and Sisters, and The Wayfarers' Words (in three Vols.) and What was the Original Gospel in Buddhism?

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
