The present book is an anthology of my previously published fifteen articles in the span of 19 years. Many articles were not available today. My friend and colleagues suggested me to put them into a book and publish it so that they became useful for the readers and available at one place. Therefore I took this task and this work is here. In this book there are varieties of articles; in Theravada and Mahayana and also in Tibetan Buddhism. Right from the Buddhism from the Gandhian perspectives to the status of women, this anthology covers mainly the most highlighted concepts of Tibetan Buddhism i.e. Bodhicitta or the altruistic attitude of the mind. I have also chosen the much discussed meditational practice of Buddhism i.e. Vipassana and two articles are given in this book here. The much discussed theory of void and Dependent origination is also given from Tibetan practice point of view. An article on Dependent origination is also given as the Buddha said that one who sees the dependent origination sees the Dharma. Compassion begets merits and because of the compassion Buddha agreed to disseminate his teachings after his initial hesitation at Bodh-Gaya. Two articles are attributed to the compassion and its associated practices from the Tibetan perspectives. The most solicited article is Buddhism today which will compel the reader to think about the religion, practices and the man and associated habits since the time unknown.
