The book entitled: ‘Language and Truth in Buddhism’ highlights the role and status of Language in Buddhist Philosophy, ethical dimension of Buddhism, various logical, epistemological and ontological problems as embedded in Buddhism, Post-modernism and Buddhism, inter-cultural aspects of Buddhism and also Buddhist Art. The volume, we believe, will open a vista to the future researchers in Buddhism, as it covers a wide range of Buddhist thought and literature enriched by the eminent scholars in this field.
