Part 18 - Milindapanha Pali

Mihndapanha Pali is the last of the books which constitute Khuddaka Nikaya It records the questions asked by King Milinda and the answers given by the Venerable Nagasena some five hundred years after the Pannibbana of the Buddha King Milinda was Yonaka (Graeco-Bactrian) ruler of Sagala He was very learned and highly skilled in the art of debating. The Venerable Nagasena, a fully accomplished Arahat, was on a visit to Sagala at the request of the Samgha

King Milinda, who wanted to have some points on the Dhamma clarified, asked the Venerable Nagasena abstruse questions concerning the nature of man, his survival after death, and other doctrinal aspects of the Dhamma The Venerable Nagasena gave him satisfactory replies on each question asked. These erudite questions and answers on the Teaching of the Buddha are compiled into the book known as the Milindapanha Pali.
