A MILLENNIUM OF BUDDHIST LOGIC
A MILLENNIUM OF BUDDHIST LOGIC
Description
About the Book:

This is Volume One of Texts (from Sanskrit and Tibetan sources) of the two planned volumes on Buddhist Ligic (the second volume to be on topics and opponents). This first volume is in two parts: Part I (Introductory) has Asanga's Rule of Debate, Dharmakirti's Nyayabindu with Kamalasila's commentary, and Santi-pa's treatise on 'inner pervasion. Part II, devoted to the Dignaga-Dharmakirti system, has five sets of eleven verses, then a study of Bu-Ston's commentary on Dharmakirti's Pramanaviniscaya, and finally Tsong-kha-pa's Mun sel on the Seven Books of Dharmakirti. The 'Millennium' goes from Asanga to Tsongkha-pa. The texts here included began to be translated in the 1970s, and were brought to their present condition in the 1990s. Doubtless the present volume took longer than originally anticipated, and hopefully this published result will compensate for the many years of delay.

About the Author:

ALEX WAYMAN became Professor of Sanskrit at Columbia University in 1967 and has the title Professor Emeritus of Sanskrit, effective July 1991. His awards include the honorary D. Litt. at Nalanda University, India (April, 1978), and a work in his honor Researches in Indian and Buddhist Philosophy (Delhi, 1993). He published in Japan, 1994, his main contribution to Sanskrit per se, a translation of the Visvalocana lexicon. He is well-known for his publications in non-tantric and Tantric Buddhism, using the Sanskrit and Tibetan languages, his stream of books and articles now over a hundred and fifty. Showing he will complete as promised, he presents here the first of two volumes on Buddhist logic.

Illustration for Dust Jacket:

Tibetan 'chams dancer in Gelugpa tradition (from the F.D. Lessing collection). Here, depicting Vaisravana in the role of a wealth deity and a Dharmapala (protector of Buddhism). In his right hand, a symbol of the Buddhist three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha); in his left hand, a symbol of the wish-granting jewel. Just as in debate there are two sides, with expected rewards.
