This book attempts to present, perhaps for the first time, a fairly comprehensive account of Buddhist Conception of Man, Human Emancipation and patterns of complex inter-relationship between them. It seeks to bring out major aspects of each of them, avoiding doctrinal differences and controversies among Buddhists through the history of Buddhism spread over 2500 years and more. Instead, the study highlights profound insights of the Buddhist investigation into the issues under consideration right starting from the Buddha through his prominent followers, and brings out their contemporary relevance and significance in no uncertain ways.
