About The Book

The theme deals with the religious philosophy of Gautama Buddha who renounced the royal robes and power, became a monk and ultimately founded Buddhism which spread in several regions of India and the neighbouring countries. Buddha travelled widely and his philosophy greatly attracted people who became his ardent disciples. As a result several viharas were inaugurated where the main emphasis was on the life of piety and social service. The chapters thus deal with moksha, Mahayana, discipline and enlightenment, social foundations, moral precepts, four truths and the middle path, missionary life and its concept and Buddhism as an institutional religion.

This work would be useful for teachers, students and the learned persons, in India and abroad, who are interested in the socio-religious philosophy of Gautama Buddha.

Contents include: Gautama Buddha: Life Sketch; Missionary Life of Buddha; Four Truths and the Middle Path; Bandha; Samvara; Nirjara; Moksha; Stages on the Path; The Moral Precepts; Buddhism and Buddha; Buddhism as an Institutional Religion; Mahayana in the Making: Discipline and Enlightenment; Buddha's Relations with his Disciples; Social Foundations of Early Buddhism; Last Events in Buddha's Life; Nature of Karma; Asrava.

Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Gautama Buddha showed the signs of renunciation at an early stage of his career. Happily married and having a son, he took little interest in family life and made a firm decision to carve out a life totally different from domestic environments, which he gave up for all time to come. Soon he toured several regions of India and the message based on truth, non-violence and righteousness spread in urban and rural areas, of Indian sub-continent as well as abroad.

He gave vent to his feelings quite openly about the eight- fold path which his followers would follow so that their life could be the real example for millions of people living in the far- flung areas. These eight principles were as follows:

1. right knowledge. 2. right determination. 3. right. conversation. 4. right character. 5. right way of life. 6. right approach. 7. right attention. 8. right perseverance.
