Lalji Shravak (Editor) Charles Willemen (Editor)

It is well known that Buddhism brings an international dimension to Indian culture. N.H. Samtani, an Indian scholar of international fame, truly represents this international aspects. He has represented India all over the Buddhist scholarly world. His work will be consulted for a long time to come. The subjects of the contributions show a connection with the sphere of interest of N.H. Samtani, namely textual studies, but also socio-philosophical studies.

Because the response was overwhelming, the editors had to select a limited number of contributions. Thirteen of the twenty-four contributions are written by scholars from abroad. Every student of Buddhism and of religion in general is sure to find useful information in the many pages of this volume.
