Description

From the Jacket:

The present volume, comprising nineteen articles by renowned scholars, is divided into three sections, namely, Buddhist, Jaina and Hindu Philosophical Researches.

Under the Buddhist section Bareau, using the Vinaya in Chinese, defends Wayman's position that Asanga belonged to Mahisasaka sect. Nakamura points out differing view about the seven Vajjian Republic principles. Michael Hahn and Samtani concern with Buddhist poet Candragomin and the term raga resectively. Shinjo Kawasaki expounds the views of Bhavya about the differing karma of non-sentient and sentient beings. Hirakawa's article deals with the relation with dhatu. Collett Cox shows that the present 12-membered formula is taken for granted by early Chinese Abhidharma texts.

In Jaina section, Jaini deals with the theory that an omniscient being can subsist on a subtle kind of food. Dhaky's main object t ascertain early parts of Dasavaikalikasutra, also goes into the matter of food.

The articles in Hindu section take a comparative base, K.K. Raja compares the Buddhist and Mimamsa views on Laksana. K. Bhattacharya speaks of grammarians and philosophers regarding post-Panini grammarians on a certain anusasana. R.C. Dwivedi compares Kashmir Saivism with Sankara's Vedanta and T.S. Rukmani compares siddhis as found in the Bhagavata Purana and in Patanjali's Yogasutras. R.V. Joshi compares the Advaita and the Vaisnava views of the matter.

The work breaks new grounds and is a solid contribution in the field of Indian Philosophy.
