2 Bimala Churn Law
A History of Pali Literature
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2007; 8183900046 / 9788183900041; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Bimala Churn Law d A History of Pali Literature, author Dr. Bimala Churn Law had intended to publish a comprehensive work on Pali literature. We all know his former publications on Buddhist topics and their intrinsic value, and I repeatedly congratulated him on the happy choice of his themes and on the clever manner in which he had accomplished his task.The first part deals with the chronology and general history of the Pali Pitakas. In the Introduction to this volume I have briefly discussed the origin of Pali and the importance of the study of Pali as one of the Indian languages. A systematic and critical treatment of the puzzling problem of the chronology of the Pali canon follows next, throwing a new light on this intricate and difficult subject.The second part which treats of post-canonical Pali literature is devoted to the study of extra-canonical works presupposed by the Pali commentaries, the PSH chronicles, the Pali manuals, the Pali literary piece, the Pali grammar, lexicographies, and works on rhetoric. In the concluding chapter, he has tried to give a general survey of the whole Book and traced the development of Pali poetry. He has given two appendices dealing with the Historical and Geographical refrences in the Pali Pitakas and the Pali tracts in the inscriptions, which, he believes, will be found useful. He have appended and index at the end of the covenience of readers.Printed Pages: 558. 103819

5 Bimala Churn Law
Geography of Early Buddhism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 812151200X / 9788121512008; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 
Bimala Churn Law's Geography of Early Buddhism fulfils the long and acutely felt need for such a work; for many of the topographical features, both real and imaginary described in ancient literature, exist no longer. Early Pali literature, Jataka tales, Asokan inscriptions and the account of Chinese pilgrims contain much geographical information along with a mass of other details. All these scattered facts are collected and arranged here in a systematic manner so as to bring out a coherent geographical picture of ancient India. The chapters are so planned as to bring out clearly the various physical features like boundaries, towns, cities, lakes, rivers and mountains of the five regions-Middle, North, West, South and East-in which India is traditionally divided. The countries-Ceylon, Burma and others which adopted Buddhism later-are also described. A note on Cetiya and a map, showing the important kingdoms, cities, rivers and mountains known in that dim and distant past, are added. Printed Pages: 112 with 1 map. 026245

9 Bimala Churn Law (translated Into English)
The Legend of the Topes (Thupavamsa)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8170690005 / 9788170690009; Reprint; Hardcover; New; 
The Legend of the Topes is a translation of Thupavamsa written by Vacissara Thera, the librarian of King Parakkamabahu (AD 1153-86) of Ceylon. The author sums up the life of the Buddha in a masterly way and gives a detailed account of the topes which were erected over the bodily relics of the Buddha with their later history. The word 'tope' is derived from the Sanskrit stupa which denotes the dome-shaped shrine of the Buddhists. Thupavamsa is divided into two books, the first one dealing with the topes in India and the second with those in Ceylon. The first book tells the story of the Buddha's life, his passing away, the division and distribution of his moral remains and the construction of eighty-four thousand topes during Asoka's reign. According to the author, the tope or stupa represents the bowl, the dress and other articles used by the Great Teacher. The second book takes up the history of Ceylon from the rule of Devanampiyatissa to that of Duttahagamini, who brought the whole of the island under his sway. The author gives a detailed account of how Duttahagamini built the Mahathupa on the great tope without burdening his subjects for special levies for this purpose. As the Mahathupa was nearing completion, Duttahagamini fell seriously ill and entrusted the work of completion of the tope to his younger brother, who resorted to a stratagem, and saw to it that Duttahagamini died with the satisfaction of seeing the Mahathupa in all its splendour. The present work, The Legend of the Topes, translation of Thupavamsa will help the readers to understand and appreciate a Pali traditional work of the late medieval period. This will prove as an invaluable sourcebook of Buddhism and early history of India and Ceylon. Printed Pages: 112. 025695
