The author, himself a Buddhist monk & scholar, removes a number of common misconceptions about Buddhism, & provides a comprehensive, compact, lucid & faithful account of the Buddha’s teachings that persistently enjoys great popularity in colleges, universities & theological schools both here & abroad. “For years, says the Journal of the Buddhist Society, the newcomer to Buddhism has lacked a simple & reliable introduction to the complexities of the subject. Dr Rahula’s What the Buddha Taught fills the need as only could be done by one having a firm grasp of the vast material to be sifted. It is a model of what a book should be that is addressed first of all to ‘the educated & intelligent reader. Authoritative & clear, logical & sober, this study is as comprehensive as it is masterly.
