This book comprises fifteen research articles primarily based on the
discipline of Indian and Buddhist Studies. The collection is designed to
propose a Buddhist philosophy of religion--that the insight of Prajna and
Sunyata initiates a future religion which is freed both from conflict
between reasoning and believing, and from goal-oriented cycles of life. It
addresses transformation from the conflict-ridden quest for a supreme
being, to the search for a non-theistic nature of spirituality that
provides a foundation for universal human happiness and salvation. For the
discipline of Buddhist Studies, this collection also demonstrates the
productive value of drawing upon cross-cultural and cross-racial literary
sources and traditions.
"...full of thought provoking discussions of a wide range of questions
difficult to assess in a single review... a stimulating work for anyone
interested in Buddhist philosophy and spirituality."
