What the Buddha Thought
- +

What the Buddha Thought provides an introduction to the Buddha’s thought, and Buddhism itself. It argues that we can know far more about the Buddha than is generally acknowledged and that his thought has a greater coherence than is usually recognized. Interpreters both ancient and modern have taken little account of the historical context of the Buddha’s teachings; but by relating them to early brahminical texts, and also to ancient Jainism, Gombrich gives a much richer picture of the Buddha’s meaning, especially when his satire and irony are appreciated. Since many of the Buddha’s allusions can only be traced in the Pali versions of surviving texts, the book establishes the importance of the Pali Canon as evidence. The author stresses the Buddha’s capacity for abstraction: though he made extensive use of metaphor, he did not find his arguments upon it, as earlier thinkers had done. He ethicised and radically reinterpreted older ideas of karma and rebirth. Similarly, building on older texts, he argued for the fundamental importance of love and compassion and analysed fire as a process which could stand as a model for every component of conscious experience. Morally, the Buddha’s theory of karma provided a principle of individuation and asserted each individual’s responsibility for his own destiny.
