Amitabha - A Story Of Buddhist Theology

3.0 3 5 Author: Paul Carus
As e-book.
The story of Amitabha has a historical setting in the ascendancy of the kingdom of
Gandhara, under King Kanishka, whose interest in Buddhism and whose connection with Acvaghosha, the great Buddhist philosopher, are well known. The plot gives ample opportunity in discussion and incident to explain and illustrate some of the cardinal points of Buddhism, especially in regard to the way of salvation and the God-conception represented by Amitabha Buddha, the Source of Infinite Light and the Standard of Being, as distinct from the Brahman idea of a conscious personal deity.
