Motilal Banarsidass Publ., 1990 - Buddhism - 470 pages
The present volume selcts twenty-four of Prof. Wayman`s published research papers around the topic of Buddhist Insight, and includes only strong, well developed papers consistent with the topic. Students of Buddhism and general Indian religion will find here a rich offering of genuine research with the best of sources and Wayman`s own thoughtful presentations and original organization of the information. The papers begin with Buddha as Savior among the latest and end with the earliest in this volume, Twenty one Praises of Tara.The Hindu and Buddhist Studies illustrate Wayman`s comparative approach by showing both sides in their strong independence, and sensitively revealing their relation.
