3 T.W. Rhys Davids
Buddhist India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121509114 / 9788121509114; Reprint; Paperback; New; New; 
Buddhist India portrays ancient India, during the period of Buddhist ascendancy, from the non-Brahmin point of view. This study is based on the literary, numismatic and inscriptional records, and throws light on points hitherto dark and even unsuspected. This work is divided into sixteen chapters and presents a detailed account of the socio-economic, geo-political and ethico-religious conditions of the country. It describes at length the history of the kings, clans, nations vis-ŗ-vis their role in the growth and spread of Buddhism. We get a clear perspective of the activities of Candragupta, Asoka and Kaniska-the principal characters in this performance. The Buddhist and kindred literature both in Pali and Sanskrit, with special reference to the Jatakas has been thoroughly exploited for this purpose. Printed Pages: 347. 010817

4 T.W. Rhys Davids
Buddhist India
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120804252 / 9788120804258; Seventh Reprint; Softcover; New; 
In this work an attempt has been made to describe ancient India, during the period of Buddhist ascendancy, from the point of view, not so much of the brahmin, as of the rajput. Based on the literary, numismatic and inscriptional records, it throws light on points hitherto dark and even unsuspected. The two points of view naturally differ very much. Priest and noble in India have always worked very well together so long as the question at issue did not touch their own rival claims as against one another. When it did-and it did so especially during the period referred toŮthe harmony, as will be evident from the following pages, was not so great. Divided into sixteen chapters, the work presents a detailed account of the ocioeconomic, geo-political and ethico-religious conditions of the country. It describes at length the history of kings, clans, nations, vis-Š-vis their role in the growth and spread of uddhism. We get a clear perspective of the activities of Candragupta, Asoka and Kaniska-the principal characters in this performance. The Buddhist and kindred literature both in Pali and Sanskrit, with special reference to the Jatakas have been thoroughly exploited for this purpose.Printed Pages: 347. 102514

14 T.W. Rhys Davids and William Stede
Pali-English Dictionary
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121504724 / 9788121504720; Fifth Impression; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Pali Text Society is the pioneer institution which brought in print practically all the Pali canon commentaries. Rhys Davids conceived the idea of compiling an exhaustive dictionary of Pali, based on the voluminous basic material that was being brought to light. The work took more than twenty years of devoted labour, but before his death in 1922, he had the satisfaction of seeing its first volume published. In four volumes, issued over 1921-25, the dictionary contains practically every Pali word, with its Sanskrit root identified and meanings given in English. Carrying over 150000 textual references, the work holds the field, even today as the best and most comprehensive Pali-English Dictionary. Printed Pages: 753. 033753

16 T. W. Rhys Davids & William Stede
Pali-English Dictionary
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120811445 / 9788120811447; Fourth Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The merits and demerits of the work will be sufficiently plain even from the first fasciculus. But one or two remarks are necessary to make the position of my colleague and myself clear. We have given throughout the Sanskrit roots corresponding to the Pali roots, and have omitted the latter. It may be objected that this is a strange method to use in a Pali dictionary, especially as the vernacular on which Pali is based had never passed through the stage of Sanskrit. That may be so; and it may not be possible, historically, that any Pali word in the canon could have been actually derived from the corresponding Sanskrit word. Nevertheless the Sanskrit form, though arisen quite independently, may throw light upon the Pali form; and as Pali roots have not yet been adequately studied in Europe, the plan adopted will probably, at least for the present, be more useful. Still, the work is essentially preliminary. There is a large number of words of which we do not know the derivation. There is a still larger number of which the derivation does not give the meaning, but rather the reverse. It is so in every living language. Who could guess, from the derivation, the complicated meaning of such words as žconscienceÓ, žemotionÓ, ždispositionÓ? The derivation would be as likely to mislead as to guide. We have made much progress since then. As the Pali Text Society began issuing editons and translations of the Pali Canon and Commentaries in quick succession, Rhys Davids conceived the idea of the compilation of an exhaustive dictionary of Pali, based on the voluminous basic material that was being brought to light. the work took more than twenty years of devoted labour but before his death in 1922, Rhys Davids had the satisfaction of seeing its first volume published. In four volumes issued over 1921-25 the Dictionary contains every Pali word with its sanskrit root identified and meanings given in english. Carrying over 1,50,000 textual references, the work holds the field, even today, as the best Pali-English Dictionary.Printed Pages: 753. 102579

17 T.W. Rhys Davids
The History and Literature of Buddhism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121509289 / 9788121509282; Reprint; Paperback; New; New; 
Before T.W. Rhys Davids and some others ventured into interpretations of obscure sources of Buddhist philosophy and history, most of the material was lying scattered. It was strange, and very characteristic of the real meaning of true Buddhism, that there was no life of Gautama the Buddha in the Buddhist scriptures. Known sources of the Buddha's life-story like Malalankara Watthu and the Jataka Book were written much after the days of the Buddha. These were more or less in the same tradition and written in Pali. The Pali poem called Jina Carita was written in Ceylon by Buddhadatta as late as in the thirteenth century of our era. Glorious works in Sanskrit like Buddha Carita and Lalitavistara are almost certainly dated in the present era. Rhys Davids, who followed the established codes of research in classical history and literature, felt that "Buddhism should not be treated as a religion such as is understood by those who regards religion as consisting of certain beliefs and ideas concerning the soul and its destiny and of the various deities who are supposed to help or hinder human beings in the attainment of the ultimate goal. He regards Buddhism as a different kind of religion divorced from all that is known of religion in the traditional sense of the term." Printed Pages: 136. 016948
