This comparative study explores the relation between the Vimuttimagga and Visuddhimagga, the Path of Freedom and the Path of Purification, both classical meditation manuals of the Theravada tradition.
The Vimuttimagga, extant as a whole only in a Chinese translation, and partially in Tibetan quota­tions, is generally regarded as the predecessor of the Visuddhimagga. Although both manuals are Abhidhammic in style, the Vimuttimagga is more practical and concise whereas the Visuddhimagga is more scholarly and elaborate.
This study, first published in 1937, is for those who would like to study the similarities and differ­ences between the two works.
P. V. Bapat, Ph.D (Harvard), was Professor of Ancient Indian Culture, Pali, and Buddhism at Poona University. Besides making editions of Pali texts, he translated into English the Shan-chien-p 'i-p 'o-sha, the Chinese version the of Samantapasadika, in collaboration with A. Hirakawa
