Description About the author
A warm and stimulating book, this text describes the India into which
the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the
development of his teachings, and then follows the course of Buddhism
through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. Far from being a
recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha
always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his
time. If he preached detachment from many of the things by which
ordinary men are tied, he did so as a means of enriching life rather
than escaping it. These examinations and more make this a book to reveal
the social-revolutionary potential of Buddhism.
