In order to accomplish his purposes, he deals with his subject under four headings: - Buddhism in Thought - Buddhism in History - Buddhism in Tradition - Buddhism in ActionIt is the author's conviction that "the time has come to think of Buddhism not in terms of temples or of traditional rituals, but in terms of injecting more vitality to make Buddhism more meaningful to all of us. Buddhism has a living significance as a great world religion and can contribute to the enrichment of world culture."
