 DESCRIPTION
spacer

In this magisterial study of the social alan of early Buddhism, nalin swaris argues that the radical thrust of the Buddha's teaching is based on his realisation that the individual is a fiction of human craving. The Buddha's decision to found a community of compassion and sharing was the practical expression of his conviction that individualism is the principal obstacle to human happiness. The Buddha's way was not discovered and preached in a social vacuum. Orthodox Hinduism classifies its sacred traditions into srutis (sacred truths of the vedas heard by ancient rishis while in a trance) and smritis (codes of conduct). In deliberate counterpoint to the Brahman tradition, the majority of the Buddha's discourses begin with the declaration: evam me sutam thus have i heard...' swaris argues persuasively that Buddha's teachings are not esoteric, but grounded in everyday life. The dhamma is not a revealed truth that humans could not have discovered by themselves. It is like a light brought into a darkened room so that people could see what is already there, once the fog of delusion is dispelled.
