Description
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.

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.
