The Indian epic the Mahābhārata is a book of considerable breadth and unique character. As is remarked in the final notes of the work itself, “With respect to the right method, interest, the passions and release, what is here is also elsewhere and what is not here is not found elsewhere”. This lecture starts from the Mahābhārata, and investigates the differences and connections of Hinduism and Buddhism and works to better understand the impact of Buddhism upon Chinese literature with respect to stories, transformation and rhetoric, to gain a greater grasp on the fundamental character of Indian culture.
