In the present book an endeavour has been made by us to delineate the life and death of the Buddha uthenticating with Pali and Samskrt ratifications. Relevant data for this book has been ably marshalled from the literary citations thereby paving substratum to understand the great teacher in the right perspective and to fabricate the life and cessation of the Buddha on equitable and syllogistic rounds. In the preparation of this book we have to dive deep into the Buddhist philosophy and could be able to project the correct meaning of the intricate terms Nirvana and Mahaparinirvana. We have aimed too to lay emphasis on the literary and plastic corroborations of the Nirvana and the Mahaparinirvana of the lord Buddha and hoped against hope to visualise the total personality of the great teacher fully and comprehensively. The book is a resultant of a fervid study of the life and cessation of the grand personality, Light of Asia, the Buddha who sanctified the Indian soil by the tred and trod of his holy feet. The authors elucidate in this book with percipience and authenticity the various life events of the Buddha and his great finale. The masterly treatment of the chapters like the life events of the Buddha and the evenings of the Buddha`s career reflect the immaculate scholarship of the authors. The cogentre appraisal of the chapter on stone-page of Buddha`s Nirvana and Mahaparinirvana is amazing. In fact the book is a running commentary of the life and dissolution of Buddha as gleaned through Pali and Sanskrit texts. This splendid book remains an authoritative and entrancing work on the subject. No student of Buddhist religion, philosophy, art and architecture can afford to let slip this gainful work. Preface 1.
