This compendium on study of Buddhism was earlier published on the great and auspicious occasion on of the twenty-fifth century celebrations organised in the honour of Lord Buddha not only by our grateful nation but also by the world at large. The contributions of Buddhism are varied in the domains of language and literature, art and archi-tecture and moral and social ideas throughout the whole world. The Buddha`s teachings inference the religious culture of half of the humanity. It is all due to the fact that the Buddhism moves very easily from one culture to another because its emphasis is on internal practice rather than external forms of religious behaviour. Its emphasis is on the way each practitioner develops his or her mind not on how he dresses, the kind of food he eats, the ways he bears his hair and so forth. This volume is most interactive and highly educatives informative one and I hope that it will be very useful and popular among scholars, students and readers who are intrested in Buddhism. The wholesome efforts by the different writers will be instrumental in creating interest and generating appreciation and encouragement for spreading over Buddhism in India and western countries in line of the eastern and southern countries of the world.
