Buddhism can be viewed as a vehicle for transporting its adherents, who are anxious for release from rebirths but least inclined to follow either the path of rigorous asceticism or that of tantalizing speculation on the nature of the self, from this word of misery to Nirvana where all pain ceases. Its message was so simple and direct that all, from prince to plebeian alike, succumbed to its appeal and swelled its ranks. It became the religion of an empire which held sway over the Indian sub-continent; in the process the message of the master was lost. A number of schools, each claiming to echo... View more info

Vajrayana Buddhism received its name from the Sanskrit word vajra, which represents the thunderbolt wielded by Indra, the god of war and weather. This word also loosely translates to mean 'diamond', denoting unbreakable strength. As such, Vajrayana Buddhism is often called the Diamond Vehicle and Indestructible Path of Buddhism. It is also synonymous with various other names, including Thunderbolt Vehicle, True Words Sect, Esoteric Buddhism, Tantric Buddhism, Tantric Buddhism, Mantrayana, and Secret mantra, among others.

The book deals about the Buddhist monuments unearthed from excavations at Sirpur. So far ten Buddhist monasteries have been exposed which include from the simple one to lavishly caved double story structures indicating that right from 6th century A.D. onwards Sirpur had a rich Buddhist culture flourishing alongwith Jaina and Brahmanical cultures. It is clear that Sirpur was a great educational centre where students from even south-eastern countries studied Buddhism. Most of the Viharas got financial grants from the rulers who were Hindus.

The Book 'The Framework of Nagarjuna's philosophy' is an attempt to reconstruct a better understanding of Nagarjuna's philosophy in a novel way.

The Author has dealt with three important concepts viz. Pratitya Samutpada, Sunyata and, Nirvana which are considered to be highly technical, philosophically rich and intellectually rewarding as pillars of Nagarajuna's philosophical position viz. Madhyama Pratipad. By analysing the... View more info

The Buddhist Perspectives on Human Rights

Buddhist ethics is a Dharmic system of role responsibilities rather than an ethic of rights. The essence of Buddhist moral theory is compassion, but that Buddhist compassion is not necessarily incompatible with human rights. Compassion brings three important considerations to discussions of the nature of human rights: that human relations are determined by more than rational, external and private domains considerations : that human relationships include rights and duties but also a broader range of choices ; and that compassion entails a dynamic, moral development view of human nature.
