The Bodhisattvavadana-Kalpalata is a masterpiece of the Kashmirian polymath Kshemendra of the eleventh century A.D. This has been composed in verse, and here we find the culmination of the Buddhist Avadana literature which made its presence felt from the third century A.D. The huge assortment of stories of diverse taste and nature presented by Kshemendra by his wonderful command over the art of narration has given the book a unique place in the annals of ancient Indian story-literature. The present author has given a synopsis of all the 108 stories in English, from which the readers and scholars will have at least some idea about the whole book. Further, the author has highlighted the Avadana books in Sanskrit so far available. In this connection the author has dealt with the Buddhist doctrine of Karma with special reference to Kshemendra's book. A further attempt has been made by the author to enlighten the readers about the socio-religious and economic conditions of ancient India as depicted in the Avadanakalpalata. The concluding chapter is also informative and useful to the scholars.

About the Author:

DR. JAYANTI CHATTOPADHYAY is presently attached to the Department of Pali, Govt. Sanskrit College, Calcutta. She has totally devoted herself in the thorough study of Buddhism with special reference to the Sanskrit Texts of Mahayana Buddhism.
