These few shortcomings, however, do not lessen the overall value and contributions of this well-researched book. Naomi Appleton succeeds in drawing attention to the historical development and the ideology of a distinct and influential genre of Pāli Buddhist literature. She gives with great care and clarity the long-awaited attention that such popular and influential Buddhist texts so richly deserve.
Our conclusion with respect to the identity of the paccekabuddhas, therefore, is that they are the common ascetic tradition out of which the Sramanic Movements of Buddhism and Jainism emerged as sectarian manifestations. This theory of their identity explains the presence of the concept in both Buddhism and Jainism and accounts for the resemblance of these traditions - doctrinally, ethically and soteriologically.

"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."
