LINGUISTIC APPROACH TO BUDDHIST THOUGHT
LINGUISTIC APPROACH TO BUDDHIST THOUGHT
Description
About the Book:

Owing to the unflagging work of scholars in many Buddhist fields, especially ontological and doctrinal, a remarkable amount has been added to our knowledge and understanding of the parts and the whole. But a large amount yet remains to be done, and many problems connected with the linguistic develipment of Buddhist concepts, and with the multitude of difficult, technical terms still await solution.

Requiring further investigation are the linguistic and philosophical points of difference which grew up or, to a lesser degree, the similarities which remained as sects split off not only from the parent body but also from one another and in doing so developed their own individual tenets. Retaining some measure of the vision of the quest, they used the words and the concepts found in the earlier teaching, though often clothing them with new or developed meanings, and not seldom working out their implications to the fullest extent.

Employing linguistics and philosophical methods the author aims to establish the connection of various terms with the Theravada on the one hand and with the multitude of meanings proffered by the Mahayana Buddhist texts on the other. To determine how such fundamental terms as nekkamma, dipa, ksanti, sat, prajna, mana, kamma, anadikalika, anatman, avidya and pratyaya were used in the two main trends of Buddhist thought, what they mainly signify there, what their special implications are, and whether their import was on the whole theoretical or practical, in itself constitutes an enormous task.

Testimonials
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 !
