  • While looking for other texts that could be included in the research program, the authors came across Dr. Radhakrishnan’s remark (made in 1948) that the most important Mahayana text (The Lotus Sutra) is indebted to Bhagavad-Gita. In fact, quite independently of this remark, their research inevitably meant taking a close look at the important phenomenon of ‘Engaged Buddhism’. In this process, they discovered that, while many of the engaged Buddhists had been inspired by the Lotus Sutra, some of them had been inspired by Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara. The outcome of the consequent enlargement of the scope of the research is presented in this book.
