wheel085.pdfBuddhism in Thailand - Its Past and Its Present1318 viewsJudging from archaeological finds and other historical evidence, it is safe to say that Buddhism first reached Thailand when the country was inhabited by a racial stock of people known as the Mon-Khmer who then had their capital, Dvárávati, at a city now known as Nakon Pathom about 50 kilometers to the west of Bangkok. The great pagoda at Nakon Pathom, Phra Pathom Chedi and other historical findings in other parts of the country testify to this fact as well as to the fact that Buddhism, in its varied forms, reached Thailand at four different periods, namely: I. Theraváda or Southern Buddhism II. Maháyána or Northern Buddhism III. Burma (Pagan) Buddhism IV. Ceylon (Lankavaísa) Buddhism.44444

life_of_tha_buddha.pdfLife of the Buddha in Gandhara Art1223 viewsThe tradition of Grandhara Art is the birthplace of many strands of Buddhist art and sculpture. Historically, it is in the Gandhara tradition – now in what is Pakistan - that the Buddha came to be represented first as a person. Prior to this, the Enlightened Buddha was symbolized in art and sculpture either through foot-prints or through a stylized Bodhi Tree. The personal representations of the Buddha originated probably through the inspiration derived from the Hellenistic tradition. In numerous bas-reliefs and friezes, phases of the Buddha’s life are elaborately depicted.33333
