Buddhism in Translations

Henry Clarke Warren (Author)
Synopsis Here is a work that aims at presenting 'different ideas and conceptions' which are 'found in Pali writings'. In the works of Henry Clarke Warren, the author of the volume: 'Translation has been the means employed as being the most effectual…The selections of the first chapter are on the Buddha; next follow those which deal chiefly with the Doctrine; while others concerning the Order and secular life constitute the closing chapter of the book.' The uniqueness of the volume lies in the selective presentation of the materials and their organization. Introductory notes preceding discussion of each chapter, amply annotated, add to its originality. Appendixes and the Index form special features. This reprint of the volume after its first publication in 1896 and subsequently in 1900 will be welcomed by students as well as researchers of Buddhism.
