By Gautama Buddha has, in the intervening centuries, taken on diverse forms and paths of development as it spread to new lands and cultures and intermingled with local beliefs and practices. Thus, I wish to confine my discussion to the form of Buddhism known as Theravada, which is the prevailing religion of Ceylon, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.

Although I say this to make a start, I am sure I will not be able as I go along to keep the two points of view separate. In fact, what I want to say on behalf ofHinduism will, I hope, gain strength from the latter point of view; for it is on the general, the fundamental and universal aspects ofHinduism that I propose to concentrate my short exposition so that its relevance and validity may be seen in their true proportions and depth.
