Dr. Oldenberg has now successfully demolished the skeptical theory of a solar Buddha, put forward by M. Senart. He has sifted the legendary elements of Buddhist tradition, and has given the reliable residuum of facts concerning Buddha's life. He has examined the original teaching of Buddha, shown that the cardinal tenets of the pessimism which he preached are "the truth of suffering and the truth of the deliverance from suffering," he has expounded the ontology of Buddhism and placed Nirvana in a true light.
