    The book is enriched throughout by the author's original interpretations of Pali texts. She is aware of the risks a comparative study such as this might run, but meets the challenge through a passionately argued view that a significant "Buddhist environmental ethics" can be recognized if the subtleties of Buddhist virtue ethics are understood.

About the Book: This is a critical and comparative philosophical analysis and assessment of the teachings of Buddha as found in the early stratum of the Pali Canon and those of Lord Krsna as embodied in the Bhagavadgita. It is for the first time that the foundational works of the two most important traditions of Indian thought have been brought together for comparative treatment.
