    The exploratory volume in the new field of comparative ethics serves the

    diverse goals of groups variously interested in International law and

    morality, in comparative religious ethical ideals, or simply in

    cross-cultural literature and drama. The author draws moral ideals from

    primary Hindu sources--popular and formal, literary and spiritual. The

    same method is applied for Buddhist moral texts. Introducing method in

    comparative ethics with a synopsis of Hindu mystical tradition, the author

    diiscusses in detail ethics in the Rgveda, Upaniisads, Laws of Manu,

    Ramayana, Gita, other popular classics, poetry, drama, philosophers, and

    reformers. After summarizing pluralism in Hindu ethiics, the author

    sketches ethical thought in Mahayana Buddhiist texts. The book contains

    elaborate notes, two appendices, critical textual matter, a diagram of

    topical parallels, a bibliography, and an index.
