Summary
The aim of the present work is to trace the growth of the Buddhist community, to indicate the relation to the world of Hindu and non-Hindu society in which it arose, and to follow the rise and development of the doctrines from their legendary origin into the system which has spread over a great part of Asia. The legendary and earliest historical aspect was dealt with by the author in The Life of Buddha as Legend and History
