Vedanta and Buddhism: A Comparative Study, selected essays edited by Helmuth von Glasenapp (1995; 9pp./26KB)
This fascinating essay explores the relationship between Vedanta and Buddhism, two great monuments of philosophical thought which grew side-by-side in the same spiritual soil of ancient India. Though these two philosophies share some obvious similarities, they part ways in their fundamentally divergent notions of "self" (atta) and of the ultimate goal of spiritual practice.
