Love and Sympathy in Theravada Buddhism

by Harvey B. Aronson

$12.99 $9.74

Quantity:

Love and Sympathy in Theravada Buddhism discusses the context and contents of the Theravada teachings on love, sympathy, and the collective meditative set of four sublime attitudes (brahmavihara) universal love, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity. The presentation is based upon the first four of the five collections of Buddha's discourses, a stylistically homogeneous compilation of the earliest strata of Theravada scripture compiled before 350 B.C. After discussing the Pali material relevant to these topics in the first five chapters of this work, the author includes a detailed examination and critique of their position in Chapter Six. His concern is with the motives to social action as well as the psychological and soteriological import of the Theravada teachings on love, sympathy, and the sublime attitudes. Only through seeing these facets can the unique vision of Theravada Buddhism be appreciated. 

About the Author:

Harvey B. Aronson, Ph.D. (Wisconsin, 1975), is currently an Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, specializing in Buddhism, at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. Under the auspices of the American Institute of Indian Studies, he spent two years in India (1971-1972) studying the philosophy and meditation of Theravada, Mahayana, and Tantric Buddhism.
