Buddhism and Politics

Friedlander, Peter


The modern notions of religion and politics have no direct equivalent in ancient Indian thought and both are seen as manifestations of one underlying principle: dharma. 'The Buddhist religion' could equally well be thought of as translated as 'Buddhist morality' or 'the nature of things as taught by the Buddha'.
