Re: [Pali] Origins of Buddhism
- Hi Rahula/Ngawang,
You might like to look at these two titles:
(1) Joanna Jurewicz, "Playing With Fire: The pratitya-samutpada from the perspective
of Vedic Thought" JPTS vol 26 2000:77-103.
(2) Sue Hamilton, "Early Buddhism: A new approach" London: Curzon, 2000.
Both are greatly acclaimed contemporary works which I wish I have.
BTW, it would be great if you use you real name, since this is an academic site, not
