Buddhist Positiveness (Studies on the Lotus Sutra)
Description
From the jacket

The Lotus Sutra is one of the Buddhist texts which can give a real ideas of the force, originality, influence and value of the Buddhist Positiveness. This essay on Buddhist Positiveness was originally written (1994) by Fernando Tola as an answer to the Catholic Pope’s criticism of Buddhism according to which Buddhism is a ‘negative’ religion; and this essay was presented afterwards in an abridged version, as a paper, in The International Conference of The International Association of Buddhist Studies held in Lausanne Switzerland (in 1999).

 

Author of the book

Fernando Tola and Carmen Dragonetti have been Professors in the National Universities of San Macros (Lima, Peru) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). They undertook investigation work of the National Council for Scientific Research (CONICET) of Argentina, in the area of Indian Philosophy. They were Vice-president and President respectively of the institute of Buddhist Studies Foundation (FIEB) (Argentina); Directors of the Revista de Estudios Budistas (Journal of Buddhist Studies) REB, edited in Mexico; and Overseas Research fellows of The International Institute for Buddhist Studies (Tokyo).

Independently or in collaboration, they have published several books in Spanish on Indian Culture, specially or Indian Philosophy as Yoga and Mysticism of India, philosophy and Literature of India, Mahayana Buddhism; Buddhist Idealism, Buddhist Nihilism; several translations into Spanish of important Sanskrit and Pali texts, as Hymns of the Rig Veda, Hymns of the Atharva Veda, Upanisads, Bhagavadgita, Upadesasahasri Gita Govinda, Amarusataka Damodara Gupta Dhammapada Udana Digha Nikaya Sutta Nipata. In English they have published The Yogasutras of Patanjali, Nagarjuna’s Refunation of Logic Vaidalyapraparana, Being as Consciousness and On Voidness, A Study on Buddhist Nihilism.

 

Preface

This book contains some of the results of the research work we carried out in the Fundacion Instituto de Estudios Budistas FIEB, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, thanks to the support of a subsidy received, during the years 1998 and 1999 from the Agencia National de Promocion Cientifica y Technologica of Argentina, for the Project PICT 04-00000-01611: EI Sutra del Loto (Saddharmapundarikasutra) Doctrinas, Problemas, Actualidad (“The Lotus Sutra (Saddharmapundarikasutra): Doctrines Problems Actuality”).

It is also thanks to the Agency that we could finish the ten years Project of translating from Sanskrit into Spanish the Lotus Sutra, translation that appeared in Mexico, in may 1999, published by EI Colegio de Mexico and by the Asociacion Latinoamericana de Estudios Budhistas. We began this Project in Tokyo in 1989 and it had the generous support of Dr. Tsugunari kubo, President of The Reiukari. This Project is tightly connected with the book that now we present since it was in the course of the translation of the Lotus Sutra that the ideas, problems and interpretations that gave rise to these studies reunited in this book evolved.

It is also thanks to the same support of the Agency that the translation into Spanish from Chinese (with Introduction and Notes) of the sutra of the Infinite Meanings could be done, and was published in Spain by Desclee de Brouwer editors in the year 2000. This sutra is also very much related to the Lotus Sutras and to the religious doctrines philosophical theories and/ or Buddhist themes which are developed in this book..

In the frame of the same Project our Foundation invited the well- known Peruvian scholars Dr. Santiago Erik Antunez de Mayolo, Honorary President of the Sociedad Geografica del Peru (“Geographic Society of Peru”) , to attend the simposiosobre el Alimento (“Symposium on food”) that he presided in our institution, the Fundacion Institito de Estudios Budistas FIEB on 25th June 1999. His important communication on EI alimento en el Incanato (“Food in the Inca Empire”) was accompanied by other two papers on The Attitudes in Face of Food in Ancient India: Fernando Tola’s on Vedism, Brahmanism, Hinduism, and Carmen Dragonetti’s on Buddhism and the Lotus Sutra, both included in their English version in this book united in a sole essay.

The studies include in this book are enumerated in the following paragraphs with Roman numbers from I to XIII. We point out the academic journals where some of them were published for the first time or the congresses or academic meetings in which some of them were presented as paper by both authors; we give also the indication about the language in which they were originally published (Spanish of English or both). They appear now with some modifications as for instance the inclusion of the original texts Sanskrit, Pali or Tibetan :

Carl, UK.
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.
