Buddhism In India And Abroad: An Integrating Influence In Vedic and Post-Vedic Perspective
Buddhism In India And Abroad: An Integrating Influence In Vedic and Post-Vedic Perspective
Description
From the Jacket:

This includes thirty-five papers presented by eminent scholars at the Seminar. The reason for organizing this Seminar on Buddhism emanates, perhaps, from the ambitious quest for an integrated culture or mankind in transnational and comparative perspective, utilizing the inputs made by the various disciplines concerned.

This volume provides thus an international and interdisciplinary group with the backgrounds as Philosophy, Religion, History, Sociology, Anthropology, Art history, Archaeology, Language and Literature for the first time together round a table, to exchange ideas and in that process gave a visibility of Buddhist Studies as an independent discipline in its own right.

What has really been missed in the case of Buddhism is the recognition that it is not just a form of faith or system of religion to be treated through its doctrines and philosophies, the sects and schools, its relation with the other schools of thought, be it in India or China or Japan or Thailand, but it is most intimately linked to the life of the people and their culture as a whole. It is these cultural and civilizational aspects of the people and their culture as a whole. It is these cultural and civilizational aspects of behavior of humanity as a whole and societies through time, and over space, which are significant and have an universal message that has been brought through this book-Buddhism in India and Abroad: An Integrating Influence in Vedic and Post Vedic Perspective along with rare photographs of Buddhist caves etc.

Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
