This book presents a brilliant account of of Theravada Buddhism and embraces a wide variety of themes ranging from the birth of Buddhism to the Buddha’s prophetic teachings regarding the future of mankind. Topics covered include, among many others, the background of early Buddhism; the significance of the Buddha’s birthday; the Buddhist doctrines of karma and reincarnation; the Buddhist conception of truth, good and evil, Nirvana, the individual, the universe and the material world; the Buddhist view of nature and destiny; Buddhism and the caste system; Buddhism and international law; and the contemporary relevance of the Buddha’s teachings to the modern world.

"Facets of Buddhism" is a collection of essays written by one of the pre-eminent Japanese scholars in the fields of Buddhism and comparative religion. The ten essays are loosely linked together by the common themes of dependent co-origination (pratitya-samutpada); of the effect of Madhyamika and Yogacara ideas on Japanese literature and culture; and of the tensions and harmonies amongst different religious traditions and different Buddhist sects. The work provides access to a wide range of Japanese scholarly exchange and opinion, much of which has until now been available only in Japanese; offers a presentation of the different Chinese, Tibetan, and Japanese interpretations of important passages from classical Indian Buddhist texts; and gives a comparison of meditation techniques described by Indian, Chinese and Tibetan writers. Drawing on his experiences during a long and distinguished career as a teacher and scholar, Professor Iida provides insights into the place of women and the feminine principle in Buddhism, the convergence of folk beliefs and philosophical Buddhism in Japan, the rise of the modern Japanese Buddhist sects and, through a comparison of Buddhist, Christian and Sufi-Yogic practices and modern psychology, the difference, similarities and interdependence of the different faiths of humankind.

This book analyses our conventional ways of looking at Buddhism in general and Buddhist tantra in particular. It investigates how the frameworks and structures that were developed for European and Biblical studies have been deployed to interpret various facets of Buddhism. Many such models that still dominate the historical imagination of Buddhist studies have been examined in this book. This book also proposes an alternative approach towards the Buddhist studies and advocates incorporating the critical study of tantra texts from the perspective of traditional accounts.
