About the Book :
This book sets out to discuss and interpret the main themes of Buddhist thought in India. The emphasis throughout is on those aspects of the doctrine that appear to be indubitably true or significant. An attempt has been made at furthering the understanding, as distinct from the bare knowledge, thus instead of stringing together a lot of quotations, lucid explanations have been used to bring forth the doctrines of Buddhist faith. Thus, in presenting Buddhist philosophy as an intelligible, plausible and valid system, the author has not lost sight of its function as a spiritual method designed to win emancipation from the world.
The author has also made an attempt to contribute to philosophical thought, by providing a framework upon which a philosophical system can be built which is as valid, cogent and coherent as those based on modern science.
