1 Caroline A.F. Rhys Davids
A Buddhist Manual of Psychological Ethics (Buddhist Psychology) of the Fourth Century BC: being a translation, now made for the first time, from the Original Pali of the First Book in the Abhidhamma-Pitaka
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121507170 / 9788121507172; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume is a translation from original Pali into English of Dhamma-Sangani, the first book of the seven books of the Ahidhamma-Pitaka. The Dhamma-Sangani is an important text of the Theravadin School of Buddhism and deals with the enumeration of the psychic and mental properties, i.e., the elements and objects of consciousness and constitutes an important work from the point of view of psychological ethics. It is a Buddhist manual of psychological ethics and provides an 'enumeration of the Dhammas', i.e., an inquiry into the mental elements or processes. It is a compendium of the terms and concepts in vogue among the Buddhists and the Import and meaning of which have been made clear for those striving to attain the Buddhist ideal of Arahat-ship. The book is divided into three main sections containing the Genesis of Thoughts, Form and the Division Entitled 'Elimination'. The learned author has not simply rendered a literal translation of this difficult text but has added copious notes to the text and has also tried to connect the Manual with the rest of the Buddhist Pitakas. In her Introductory Essay, she has discussed with great erudition, the relevant portions regarding the historical traditions, the commentaries on the subject, Buddhist psychological ethics and the fundamental concepts such as those relating to mind, and theory of intellection, and Buddhist notions of good, bad and indeterminate. A glossary of Pali words and a general index have enhanced the value of the book. Printed Pages:488. 039762

2 Caroline A.F. Rhys Davids
A Manual of Buddhism for Advanced Students
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1978; 8170690889 / 9788170690887; Reprint; Hardbound; New; New; 
Mrs. Rhys Davids, A Manual of Buddhism delves deep into the Pali Pitakas and Sanskrit Sutras of Buddhism, removes the huge mask of arid theology accumulated during the passage of that religion through different periods, different tongues and different races of men, and presents, in its pristine purity, the original message of the Buddha, who so extended the concepts of "way" and "Dharma" in the Upanishads, as to suit all men who "eddy about here and there, striving blindly, achieving nothing." He showed a way, which steered clear of the two extremes of self-indulgence and severe austerities; which was not an adage of worldly wisdom and prudence, no better than Aristotle's "the middle character is in all cases to be praised"; which gave equal emphasis to all the joys and opportunities of life; which involved "a long steep journey through sunk gorges, over mountain in snow"; which became clear as one progressed; which required Dhamma as its only guide, which was one of advance to a clear goal; which was no less adventurous than the one pursued by the prince in Kusa Jataka to win back his lost soulmate. His original teaching is so simple and direct that it is irresistible, which is the reason why Buddhism has survived as a world-religion to this day. Mrs. Rhys Davids' clarity of thought and diction, in combination with her deep erudition, have contributed in making this manual unique. Printed Pages: 360. 022582

3 Caroline A.F. Rhys Davids
Sakya or Buddhist Origins
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8121513146 / 9788121513142; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
Sakya or Buddhist Origins by Mrs. Rhys Davids is as relevant today as it was in 1928, the year of its first publication. Time has added to its value. The remarkable progress in the realm of Science has not abated man's yearning for the call of the quest. As the title implies, its aim is to unravel the genuine message of Gotama, the Buddha, from the accretions in the Pali scriptures, by adopting the techniques of archaeologist. It is divided into two parts. Part one treats of "the discovery", the reconstruction, the rehabilitation of that which, at its birth, was a new and true word from very man to very man, true always and everywhere." Part two tells how this gospel came to be dressed "to suit a monastic set of ideals." An appendix dealing with Pali Pitakas is added. Over the years, in spite of a large number of books, the horizons of knowledge about Buddhism have remained stationary. This book takes a further step in widening that knowledge and thus provides an impetus for further research. Printed Pages: 452. 002673
