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.
