The works contain the scenario of the Ideology and Genesis of Buddhist Schools in India that developed from its inception upto 13th Century. According to the source on Buddhist tenets, four principal schools developed during that period, which are known as Vaibhasika, Sautrantika, Cittamatra and Madhyamika. However, controversy can be found in the identification of the pioneers of those schools, specially the pioneers of the Vaibhasika and Sautrantika schools. On the other hand, regarding the genesis of these schools it happened on the basis of understanding the doctrine and philosophy taught by the compassionate master, the Buddha.
