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 a previous book. The later phase is covered in the present work, making chronology of Indian history and the sequence of thought in teh development of Buddhist doctrine much clearer.
