The Bodhisattva Doctrine in Buddhist Sanskrit Literature
The Bodhisattva Doctrine in Buddhist Sanskrit Literature
Description
From the Jacket: The present work consists of seven chapters that deal with the Bodhisattva doctrine as expounded in the principal Buddhist Sanskrit literature. Chapter I describes the nature of the Bodhisattva doctrine with particular stress on the distinct characteristics of arhat, bodhisattva and sravaka. Chapter II recounts the different factors including the influence of Persian religio-cult, Greek art and Christian ethics that contributed to the rise and growth of the Bodhisattva doctrine. Chapter III expounds the production of the thought of Enlightenment for the welfare and liberation of all creatures. Chapter IV describes thirty-seven practices and principles conducive to the attainment of Enlightenment. Chapter V explains the ten perfections that lead to welfare, rebirth, serenity, spiritual cultivation and supreme knowledge. Chapter VI states different stages of spiritual progress in the aspirant's long journey to the goal of final emancipation and chapter VII relates the events of Gautama Buddha's past lives as Bodhisattva. The book contains comprehensive notes and references besides a general index appended at the end. It is written in a very lucid style that speaks of the writer's scholarly acumen and mastery of literary art.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
