Description
 
This abridgment of the "Milinda Panha" provides a concise presentation of this masterpiece of Buddhist literature. It presents Buddhist doctrine in a very attractive and memorable form as a dialogue between a Bactrian Greek king, Milinda, who plays the "Devil's Advocate" and a Buddhist sage, Nagasena. The introduction outlines the historical background against which the dialogues took place, indicating the meeting of two great cultures- that of ancient Greece and the Buddhism of the Indus valley which was a legacy of the great Emperor Asoka. Topics include questions commonly asked by Westerners such as "If there is no soul, what is it that is reborn?" and "If there is no soul, who is talking to you now?"

The Debate of King Milinda, Bhikkhu Pesala, Motilal Banarsidass Publishers, 134 pages, $12.00
