Based on a series of Oxford lectures delivered by a well-known Buddhist scholar, this volume covers the entire range of Buddhist thought. It introduces Buddhism as both religion and philosophy, discusses its common ground with other faiths throughout the world, contrasts monastic and popular Buddhism, and defines old and new schools of thought, including the Mahayana, the Yogacarins, and the Tantra. 'He has opened the stately ground of scholarship to the public so that nothing of value and interest shall be missed. His readers are given an opportunity to understand something that has hitherto been only a mystery.'--The Times (London) Literary Supplement. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Harper and Brothers, New York, 1959. Index. Bibliography. Timelines. Index of Quotations.
