Book Description

About The Book

What is Buddhism? What do we understand by Buddhism? It can mean many things to many people. To someone it can be only life of the Buddha. To another, Buddhism would mean the massive doctrine as recorded in the Buddhist literature, which indeed is voluminous and contains the words of the Buddha. Buddhism is not like studying a subject like mathematics where you have to learn all your theorems and different methods of working out the various types of problems.

It is, indeed, a rare opportunity for an humble student of Buddhism like me to have been asked to write a foreword to a book dealing with various aspects of Buddhism, say its origin, definition, development and above all its stand on various studies in the fields of Social Sciences, Humanities, Natural Science, Biological Sciences, Engineering, Technology and so on. Even the term Buddhism is subjected to cross-section of definitions and specifications, say Original Buddhism, Primitive Buddhism, Pre-Asokan Buddhism, Post-Asokan Buddhism, Theravada Buddhism, Hrinayana Buddhism, Mahayana Buddhism, Northern Buddhism, Southern Buddhism, Sri Lankan Buddhism, Chinese Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism (including Mongolian Buddhism), Korean Buddhism, Japanese Buddhism and ad infinitium. But all this pertains to one aspect of the study of Buddhism.
