Description
 
Beginning with the ascetic ideal, the text examines early schools of thought, presenting background on Buddhism, Brahminism, and the Upanishads. Fundamental concepts -- such as karma, nirvana, and the Bodhisattva -- receive coherent definitions. In chronicling the evolution of Buddhist doctrine, the perspective widens to take in the schools that spread from India to China, Japan, and other Asian countries. Dr. Thomas considers regional variations in the religion's tenets and brings the discussion up to date with reflections on Buddhism and modern thought.
