This book has been done wholly in America, my main reliance has naturally been on printed texts. Still, I have had the use of a number of Pali manuscripts. In Brown University at Providence, Rhode Island,there are many manuscripts, in the Burmese character, of works belonging to the Buddhist Scriptures.

The aim of the present work is to take different ideas and conceptions found in Pali writings, and present them to the reader in English. Translation has been the means employed as being the most effectual, and the order pursued is in the main that of the Buddhist " Three Jewels " (in Pāli, Ti-Rataa), to wit, The Buddha, the Doctrine; and the Order. The selections of the first chapter are on The Buddha; next follow those which deal chiefly with the Doctrine; while others concerning . the Order and secular life constitute the closing chapter of the book.
