Buddhism

This is an interesting and exciting book in showing how modern scholarship misunderstood three great Sautrantika critical philosophers. If the evidence adduced in this book is correct, then the history of Buddhist philosophy, fifth century onward, has to be rewritten. Also new studies and translations are implied of all the works of Dinnaga and Dharmakirti. The author sheds a new light, taking into consideration the views of ancient and modern scholars, on many complex and polemic issues of the Buddhist philosophy. The research is based on the discovery of the lost manuscripts of Dharmakirti by Rahula Sankrtyayana and it can be considered to be a corrective to Stcherbatsky's Buddhist Logic which is the heart of Buddhist philosophy. Stcherbatsky recognised this treasure of critical philosophy as "the most excellent achievement of Indian mind" which has further been evaluated in this book.
