The Central Conception of Buddhism
The Central Conception of Buddhism
Description
From the Jacket

This book elucidates the principle of Radical pluralism by its contrast with Aramabhavada which maintains the reality of the whole as well as of the elements and with Parniamavada which maintains the reality of the whole as well as of the elements and with Parniamavada which ascribes absolute reality to the whole.

The book is divided into sixteen sections which deals with the Skandahas, Ayatanas, Dhatus, Elements of Mind, Pratityasamutpada, Karma, Impermanence in Sankhya Yoga, Theory of Cognition, Pre-Buddhistic Buddhism etc.

The books contains two appendices dealing with the view of Vasubandhu on the fundamental principles of Sarvastivada and the classification of all elements of existence according the Sarvastivadins. Two indices included in the book gives proper names and Sanskrit terms occurring in the book.

Preface

This short treatise was originally conceived as a contribution to the Royal Asiatic Society’s Journal: its size induced the Council to publish it as a monograph, and my best thanks are due to the Council for this kind decision. I must also express my gratitude to Mrs. C. A. F. Rhys Davids, who was always ready to help with her vast knowledge of Pali literature. Professor H. Jacobi kindly went through the proofs, and to him I am indebted for many a valuable suggestion. Dr. McGovern contributed some of the references to Dr. F. W. Thomas, who devoted much of his precious time to the revision of my work and to carrying it through the press.

In transliteration I have usually not distinguished the guttural, etc., nasals, when occurring before the consonants of their respective classes.

As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

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.
