A. Raghuramaraju

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how S. Radhakrishnan explains away the radical project of Buddha and Buddhism and portrays it as a part of Hinduism. While conceding that this denial of the difference between Hinduism and Buddhism may have been necessitated as a requirement of combating colonialism through presenting a common past, the chapter discusses the need to recognize these differences subsequently in the post-colonial scenario. In this context it discusses the works of B. R. Ambedkar and T. R. V. Murti.

Keywords:   Radhakrishnan, Buddhism, Hinduism, B. R. Ambedkar, T. R. V. Murti
