[Carl Jung on Buddha, Karma, Pali-Canon.]


Dear Mrs. N.,

30 March 1960
Thank you very much for your kind attention!

The book will interest me very much, also what you told me about the Buddhist Society came quite a propos, since I have been studying Buddha’s sermons in the Middle Collection of the Pali-Canon for several months.

I am trying to get nearer to the remarkable psychology of the Buddha himself, or at least of that which his contemporaries assumed
him to be.

It is chiefly the question of karma and rebirth which has renewed my interest in Buddha.

With my very best thanks I remain,

Yours cordially, c . G. J u N G ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 548.
