Pingal Devayan (Vol. 4): Vishnu Kalpa (Vol. 1)

The Milinda Panha is a notable piece of Buddhist literature that was most likely produced in the first century before the common era. There is solid explanation for this. It offers Buddhist philosophy in a style that is exceedingly appealing and easy to remember in the form of a conversation between a Bactrian Greek monarch named Milinda, who plays the role of the "Devil's Advocate," and a Buddhist teacher named Nagasena. The majority of the issues that are often posed by Westerners are addressed, such as "If there is no soul, what is it that is reborn?" and "If there is no soul, who is talking to you now?" The themes that are discussed encompass most of these concerns. This masterwork of Buddhist literature is presented in a manner more suitable for modern readers thanks to this abridgement. The introduction provides a summary of the historical context in which the discussions took place, highlighting the collision of two significant cultures: that of ancient Greece, on the one hand, and the Buddhism of the Indus valley, which was a legacy left by the great Emperor Asoka, on the other. It is intended that the readers would be encouraged to read more from the translations of the Pali texts by the inclusion of suitable references, a glossary, an index, and a list of Pali quotes.
