The Aryan Path of the Buddha

K. Manohar Gupta (Author)
Synopsis In Buddhism, special emphasis is laid on the practice of the teachings of the Buddha and that practice chiefly consists of traversing the middle path. That middle path. That middle path is known as Aryan eightfold path, while the entire teachings of the master are labeled with the name of aryadharma. The book makes a serious attempt to go into the reasons why the master called his dharma as aryadharma. Tracing the meaning of the aryadharma. Tracing the meaning of the word arya and dharma from both the points of view, historical as well as philosophical, and also camparing the path described by the master with the ancient way of Indian life, a new purpose emerges that encourages any serious student to embark upon the path of practice shown by the master. However, even after the passing of several centuries of time after the master’s departure from this earth, the voice of the master echoes in the words, ‘attadipon viharath’, be lamp unto yourselves. After going through the book, the reader will certainly come face to face with the truths that are refreshing and create a new enthusiasm for following the teaching of the master which are encased in the ancient language of Pali.

K. Manohar Gupta

Kare Manohar Gupta (b. 1953), Ph.D. is a research scholar in the field of Pali and Buddhism. The author is a Chartered Accountant by occupation. But he became deeply interested in religion and spiritual development, both academically and also in practicing the same. While reading religious material in the course of spiritual development, he was puzzled to find various interpretations for any Sanskrit text, since Indian religious material is mostly available in Sanskrit. Utterly dissatisfied, a desire arose in the core of his heart to learn Sanskrit being the classical language, which is the barrier in understanding the ancient texts. However, in the process, he became attracted towards Pali language of Buddhism. Due to the close nexus of Pali with Sanskrit to a certain extent, he learnt Sanskrit also and developed working knowledge in it. In the course of this perseverance, he joined the University of Delhi and obtained the masters Degree from the faculty of Buddhist Studies with specialization in Pali and continued his study to be awarded the degree of Master of Philosophy from the same faculty in the same University. The finale of his study is in his being conferred with Doctor of Philosophy by same University.
