This is the fourth and final volume in the Indo-Tibetan Studies series edited by Dr. N.K. Dash. It contains seventeen research papers by noted scholars which investigate and probe into the profound concept of suffering in Buddhism. As the subject suffering touches the whole mankind, these eminent scholars view the concept from various angles as it was understood, expounded and practised by the Buddha himself, his early and later disciples and various commentators.

Dr. Dash was a reputed scholar in Sanskrit as well as in Buddhism and Tibetan. He is credited with four books and thirteen research papers. He was associated with various research organizations in India and abroad. Unfortunately the sudden death of Dr. Dash, who had finalised and completed all the editorial work, prevented him from seeing the final and published book.
