In this volume, a companion to the author's Collected Papers on Jaina Studies, 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 Abhidharma, the Bodhisattva career of Maitreya based on narratives from the Jatakas and Mahayana Sutras, and selections from Buddhist ritual texts.
"...How useful it is to have so many of the papers of one of India's finest living scholars in the field of Buddhist studies so readily available. This kind of volume is invaluable for smaller libraries and individual scholars with limited funds." - L.S.C
