  • In this magisterial study of the social lan of early Buddhism, Nalin Swaris argues that the radical thrust of the Buddha s teaching is based on his realisation that the individual is a fiction of human craving The Buddha s decision to found a community of compassion and sharing was the practical expression of his conviction that individualism is the principal obstacleIn this magisterial study of the social lan of early Buddhism, Nalin Swaris argues that the radical thrust of the Buddha s teaching is based on his realisation that the individual is a fiction of human craving The Buddha s decision to found a community of compassion and sharing was the practical expression of his conviction that individualism is the principal obstacle to human happiness The Buddha s Way was not discovered and preached in a social vacuum Orthodox Hinduism classifies its sacred traditions into srutis sacred truths of the Vedas heard by ancient rishis while in a trance and smritis codes of conduct In deliberate counterpoint to the brahman tradition, the majority of the Buddha s discourses begin with the declaration Evam me sutam Thus have I heard.Swaris argues persuasively that Buddha s teachings are not esoteric, but grounded in everyday life The Dhamma is not a revealed truth that humans could not have discovered by themselves It is like a light brought into a darkened room so that people could see what is already there, once the fog of delusion is dispelled In a style that would appeal to both lay readers and scholars, Swaris shows how the Buddha anticipated Marx, Derrida and Foucault by centuries.
