The Buddhist Answers contains detailed answers for the critical philosophical questions asked about Buddhism. This book is a result of extreme hard work of the author, researching into the lengthy Tripitaka, the doctrine of Lord Buddha.
This book intends to establish a rational basis to the Buddhist beliefs.
Lord Buddha preached in ‘Jnanasaara Samuccaya’ that,
‘As the wise test gold by burning, cutting and rubbing it (on a piece of touchstone), so are you to accept my words after examining them and not merely out of regard to me.’ The author did his level best to avoid personal opinions but to provide coherent answers by directly referring to various discourses by Lord Buddha in Tripitaka.
This book can play a vital role in the international propagation of Buddhism. Buddhist missionaries can use this book as a handbook to answer the various philosophical questions which they encounter.
