The Buddha mimansa: the Buddha and his relation to the religion of the Vedas
It is part of a comparative study of all Religions, made with a view to arrive at the Universal Réligion. The whole range of Vedic and Buddhist literature, native as well as foreign, has been researched in preparing these pages, as will appear from a perusal of the book.
It gives me much pleasure to mention that the writer, Maitreya, belongs to the house of Gautama, which traces its Patriarchal descent from the Vedic Rishi Gotama, the founder of the Nyaya Philosophy or the first school of Logic in the world. A scion of the same house was Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism and the subject of the present treatise.
