Overview for Recent Researches in Buddhist Studies: Festschrift in Honour of Professor A.K. Chatterjee
"Recent Researches in Buddhist Studies: Festschrift in Honour of Professor A.K. Chatterjee is a welcome addition to the ever-growing scholarship on Buddhist studies. It is befitting to acknowledge and appreciate the profound scholarship of Professor Ashok Kumar Chatterjee on Buddhist philosophy. It is laudable that the students and friends of Professor A. K. Chatterjee keep on record the respects for him on his 81st birthday through this volume of 10 scholarly papers. Professor Chatterjee had made known four and a half decades ago his philosophical acumen and masterly talent through his magnum opus The Yogacara Idealism, and that has run into different editions after its first publication in 1962. Often it has been said: "a tree is known through its fruits' and this is true of Professor Chatterjee, as he is known through his erudite writings to the academic world. The papers in this volume are scholarly research articles by different authors who have established their mark in Buddhist studies. As these are research papers following research methodology, the scholars and serious readers in the field would find it more useful than the popular readers."
