Description

Vinaya literature constitutes the original nucleus of Buddhist literature. It comprises brief reports, some of which have allowed to reconstruct the life of the historical Buddha. Erich Frauwallner, a pioneer in the field of Buddhist studies, restores back the whole disruptive force of a work of extraordinary importance. A fundamental work for those who wish to draw from the fount of this very ancient discipline.show more
