The next five chapters probe the contribution to the Buddhist Revival Movement in India by Anagarika Dharmapala of Sri Lanka, Ven. Kripasaran of Chittagong, Ven. U Chandramani of Burma, Ven. Fujii Guruji of Japan and seven pioneer Indian Bhikkhus. The eighth chapter highlights the contribution of Dr. B.R.

The chapters 9-11 indicate the present position of the Bhikkhu Sangha, Vipassana Meditation and Buddhist Studies in India. In the 12th chapter are listed Buddhist publications published in India in English and Hindi during the last 100 years from 1908 to 2008.
