Book: What the Buddha Thought

Chapter: The Buddha's Appropriation of Four (or Five?) Brahminical Terms

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.19114


This book shows how the Buddha both borrowed and twisted brahminical terminology. Five cases which seem to me important but not central I have here segregated in an appendix so that readers who find my discussions too technical can lighten their load by skipping them.
