The Status of The Laity in Buddhism

D.C. Ahir (Author)

What is the status of laity in Buddhism? Can a lay-Buddhist attain Nirvana? This question has been a matter of discussion among scholars for long. In this study, the author, after examining all the original sources, shows that lay-life IS no impediment in realizing Nirvana. He asserts that the Buddha preached the same Dhamma to all, and all His disciples - monks, nuns, laity - had also an equal opportunity to enter, walk and attain the blessed state of Nirvana the highest spiritual goal in Buddhism. That many laity had actually done so in the past is more than evident from numerous references in the Pali scriptures.
