Reviewed and comprehensively trashed by Steven Collins.daverupa wrote:Ascetic figures before and in early Buddhism : the emergence of Gautama as the Buddha, by Martin Gerald Wiltshire, 1990.
Wiltshire’s attempted rejoinder to Collins.
Anemically trashy criticism, presumably; I can't seem to find it online. Anyway, the rejoinder attempt succeeds, it seems to me.Dhammanando wrote:...comprehensively trashed [&] Wiltshire’s attempted rejoinder...
Norman basically thinks the author lacked the linguistic expertise to write it, at least the way it came to be written, but the review is at least locatable in JSTOR. He wrote some of his own thoughts about paccekabuddhas in Buddhist Studies: Ancient and Modern (Collected Papers on South Asia), for what it's worth. That paper would probably meet with less vitriol, so I'll find it next.daverupa wrote:...I think Norman also reviewed this book... maybe I can find that one...
Given the portentous title, one would have thought that the author must surely be Robert Ludlum. But no, apparently it's a certain Susan Carol Stone:Kamran wrote:The Kosambi Intrigue.
Kamran wrote:Apparently, its the first book in the "Sati Trilogy"...the Kosambi Intrigue
"When a trivial incident sparks conflict in a Buddhist monastery, a young monk named Sati is embroiled in a plot that reaches all the way to the palace and inflames the city of Kosambi. Amid corrosive tensions, Sati struggles to make sense of his monastic calling and the teachings of mindfulness and lovingkindness. He faces challenges that test even the wisdom of the Buddha, exposing the worst and inspiring the best in all those caught in the plot."
