Textual analysis and comparative discussion on early Buddhist sects and texts.
Recently I bought a book someone here mentioned called Buddhist Saints in India. It wasn't what I was hoping for..
Does anyone know of accounts of Buddhism after the tipitaka which speak of saints? As long as it seems historical, (i guess there are zen legends?..
This book from Bhikkhuni Sobhana's list looks right:
Taranatha. Taranatha’s History of Buddhism in India.
