Early Indian and Theravada Buddhism: Soteriological Controversy and Diversity by Bradley Clough
Prior to this study, past scholarship--which preferred to portray early Indian and Theravada Buddhism as wholly rationalist systems--has shied away from giving ample treatment on the noble person who possesses supernormal powers. This book examines the dichotomy between two Theravada monastic vocations that have grown out of the vocational and soteriological tensions.
