I've only read the conclusion at this point; very impressive. Pages from my own thoughts, it seemed to me, but more clearly phrased.

Jātaka Stories in Theravāda Buddhism: Narrating the Bodhisatta Path, by Naomi Appleton.

Reviewed here.
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.
This book was already mentioned a while ago:

but I didn't see it in this thread.

Hi, :spy:

I'm searching for Early Buddhism and the Bhagavadgita by Kashi Nath Upadhyaya. If anyone is willing to share it would be much appreciated.

It appears there is no eBook and it has to be purchased through online places like GoogleBooks and Amazon:

I cannot say I have looked through this whole thread to see if this has already been posted but here is a link to Bhikkhu Analyo's publications which are of great value in learning about early buddhism via comparative study as well as other historical considerations. There is enough material here to keep you busy for days. Anyway, I suggest you take a look.

I can't recommend "The Buddha: the social revolutionary potential of Buddhism" enough.

It makes you really feel as you are walking with the Buddha and you get a strong background in social and historical context including the Buddha's preference for cities and his winning over of kings and rulers.

Hi,

Does anyone of you has The Pitaka-disclosure (Petakopadesa) translated by Bhikkhu Nanamoli in digital format? :geek:

Ascetic figures before and in early Buddhism : the emergence of Gautama as the Buddha, by Martin Gerald Wiltshire, 1990.
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.

Reviewed and comprehensively trashed by Steven Collins.

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.

I think Norman also reviewed this book... maybe I can find that one...

Don't know if it's already listed or not but "The origin of Buddhist Meditation" by Aleander Wynne is a good one.

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.
