About the Book:

Professor P.S. Jaini is renowned amongst Indological scholars for his unique and enduring contributions to the areas of Buddhist and Jain studies. His reputation in the Buddhist and Jain studies. His reputation in the Buddhist field is based securely on his monumental edition of the important Vaibhasika text the Abhidharmadipa with its Vibhasaprabhavrtti, which was written primarily to refute the Abhidharmakosabhasya of Vasubandhu. He also has critically edited and translated the Pali apocryphal Jatakas, vital evidence for the ways in which the Buddha and his previous lives have been envisaged in Southeast Asia.

In this volume, a companion to the author's Collected Papers on Jaina Studies (Motilal Banarsidass, 2000), twenty-nine of his articles, encompassing some forty years of research on various facets of Buddhism, have been brought together for the first time. They cover a wide range of topics including comparative studies with Jainism, points of controversy within Abhindharma, the Bodhisattva career of Maitreya based on narratives from the Jatakas and Mahayana Sutras, and selections from Buddhist ritual texts.

Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
