Excerpt from Buddhist Legends, Vol. 2: Translated From the Original Pali d104 of the Dhammapada Commentary; Translation of Books 3 to 12 Matika's mother superintended the erection of a monastery to serve as their place of residence, presented it to them, and the monks took up their residence there. On a certain day they met together and admonished each other as follows, Brethren, it behooves us not to live the life of Heedlessness, for before us stand the Eight Great Hells with gates wide open, even as our own houses. N ow we have come hither thus, having received a Subject of Meditation from the living Buddha. And the favor Of the Buddhas cannot be won by a deceitful person, even though he walk in their very footsteps. Only by doing the will of the Buddhas can their favor be won. Therefore be Heedful. Two monks may neither stand nor sit in any one place. In the evening we shall meet together to wait upon the Elder, and early in the morning we shall meet together when it is time to go the rounds for alms. At other times two of us must never be together. If, however, a monk be taken sick, [291] let him come to the monastery court and strike a bell. At the signal given by the stroke on the bell, we will come together and provide a remedy for him. Having made this agreement, they entered upon residence.

This Title Is A Vast Collection And Compiliation Of 97 Important Legends Relating To Nature And Character Of Women In Buddhist Canonical And Non-Canonical Literature Which Produced A Marvellous Impact On Ethical Values Of Women Of All Classes, Who Were Moved By The Attractive Spiritual Power Of The Buddha'S Dhamma And Renounced The World To Lead A Pious Life In The Expectation Of A Happy Rebirth Or In Order To Amiability Of Rebirth Altogether. There Were A Number Of Courtesans Who Led Saintly Lives After Listening To Buddha. Ladies Of The Sakya Family Were Naturally The Earliest Women To Come Under The Influence Of The New Creed. The Women Appear To Have Enjoyed A Greater Amount Of Independence And Free Thinking Among The Sakyas Than Among The Peoples Of The Plains Perhaps Owing To The Same Scarcity Of Women That Forced Them To Enact A Law Prohibiting Multiple Marriages. The Therigatha And Its Commentary Tell Us In What Light The Monastic Life Presented Itself To Women In The Days Of Gautama Buddha.

Excerpt from Buddhist Legends, Vol. 1: Translated From the Original Pali d104 of the Dhammapada Commentary, Part 1: Introduction, Synopsis; Translation of Books 1 and 2, With a Photogravure of a Palm-Leaf Manuscript I wish to thank Professor Morris Jastrow, Jr., Librarian of the University of Pennsylvania, and his assistants, and Dr. M. L. Raney, Librarian of the Johns Hopkins University, for generous facilities afforded me in the loan of books. I am greatly indebted also to Mr. Albert J. Edmunds of Philadelphia, author of Buddhist and Christian Gospels, and of a translation of the Dhammapada, for the loan of many rare and valuable books from his private collection, at present deposited in the Library of Bryn Mawr College. I have also to thank Mrs. C. A. F. Rhys Davids, Honorary Secretary of the Pali d104 Society, for her kindness in sending to me, as fast as issued, the advance sheets of the Society's edition of the text of the Dhammapada Commentary. During the progress of the work, more particularly during my years of residence at the Johns Hopkins University as Johnston Scholar in Sanskrit, Professor Maurice Bloomfield has greatly assisted me with hints and suggestions of the highest value with reference to correct philological method as applied to the interpretation of Indie texts. I am especially indebted to Professor Bloomfield for assistance in solving many difficult problems in the comparative grammar of Sanskrit and Pali, in Pali lexicography, and in the history of the religions of India; and for innumerable suggestions relating to the handling of Hindu legends and folk-tales and to the analytical study of psychic motifs recurring in Hindu fiction. For this generous assistance I wish to express to him my most grateful thanks. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

"Beautifully written and erudite, this book fills a need in the growing literature about goddesses in Buddhism. The goddesses are meticulously researched and brilliantly analyzed. Destined to become a classic in the field, Buddhist Goddesses of India leaves no doubt that goddesses have been central, not peripheral, to Buddhism, even from the earliest traceable beginnings of the tradition."--Susan L. Huntington, author of "The Art of Ancient India" "A jewel. A very significant contribution to the field."--Adalbert J. Gail, Freie Universitat Berlin "Miranda Shaw comprehensively demonstrates the importance of the feminine divine in Buddhism. She draws together art, scripture, myth, and ritual to bring these goddesses and female Buddhas alive, producing a definitive resource for scholars of Buddhism and of women's spirituality. With her eloquent translations and scrupulous analyses, Shaw has given us a treasure of religious insight into the sacred feminine."--Patricia Monaghan, Depaul University, author of "Goddess Path" "This work is a masterpiece. Shaw's fascinating study deepens our understanding of the divine feminine in South Asia. Her luminous writing carries the reader through an amazing terrain that is rich with historical discoveries and vivid portraits of a remarkable female pantheon."--Graham M. Schweig, author of "Dance of Divine Love: India's Classic Sacred Love Story" and "Bhagavad Gita: The Beloved Lord's Secret Love Song""
