बुद्ध-धम्म के दस आधार स्तंभ-संघरक्षित
The ten pillars of Buddhism are ten ethical principles, such as generosity, truthfulness, or compassion, that together provide a comprehensive moral guide. Sangharakshita highlights the depth of these apparently simple teachings by first considering them collectively and then individually.
BAUDDH DHARAM EVAM SANKRUTI
आओ विपसना सीखे- आचार्य भिक्षु बुद्ध क्रीति
The phenomenon known as “Buddhism” embraces an uninterrupted process of communication through which the Buddha’s followers have been guided and inspired for 25 centuries. Communication is a living, evolving thing, and for all its continuity the Buddhist tradition presents the modern student – and practitioner – with a bewildering array of cultural, philosophical and practical forms. This work describes and correlates these diverse manifestations – in Buddhism’s homeland of India, and in its spread across Asia, from Mongolia to Sri Lanka and from Japan to the Middle East. Drawing on recent historical and literary research, the author explains the basic concepts of Buddhism from all periods of its development, and places them in an historical framework.
The image of the Buddha, cross-legged and meditating, appears increasingly in magazines and on television in the West. But who was the Buddha?
Here we see the Buddha as a historical figure, a warrior prince searching for the truth; in the context of the evolution of the human race, as the pinnacle of human perfection; and as an archetype.
