  • Description

    Presenting a general description of similarities and differences between the Upanisadic-Yogic and early Buddhist veiwpoints, the author analyses Gotama's rejection-acceptance-modification of the Upanisadic-Yogic method of striving for moska in his search for Buddhaghosa. It also analyzes the meditational method of Buddhaghaosa, showing the interaction between Upanisadic-Yogic jhanas and Buddhist vipassana and discusses the attraction of Theravada meditation in parts of the contemporary world.
