    Indian Conceptions of Human Personality.Karel Werner - 1996 - Asian Philosophy 6 (2):93 – 107.
    Abstract Western philosophical and psychological thinking lacks an accepted theory of human personality; it has produced conflicting and inadequate notions, such as the religious one of a soul, the vague concept of the ?mind? and biological theories basing their understanding of man on the functions of the nervous system, particularly the brain, or dealing with his mental dimension only in terms of behavioural patterns. This paper explores the notions of personality in Indian systems and finds that virtually all of them (...)

    On the Nature and Message of the Lotus Sūtra in the Light of Early Buddhism and Buddhist Scholarship (Towards the Beginnings of Mahāyāna).Karel Werner - 2004 - Asian Philosophy 14 (3):209-221.
    The aim of this paper is to compare the contents of the Lotus S?tra and the style of presentation of its message with the thrust of the Buddha's teachings as they are preserved in the early Buddhist sources, particularly the Sutta Pi aka of the P?li Canon, and also in the P?li commentarial literature. In the process it attempts to identify in the early sources the precedents of some of the bold statements in the Lotus S?tra which appear as complete (...)

    The Place of Relic Worship in Buddhism: An Unresolved Controversy?Karel Werner - 2013 - Buddhist Studies Review 30 (1):71-87.
    Although worship of the relics of the Buddha — and its corollary, st?pa worship — is a widespread feature of Buddhist devotional practice among both lay Buddhists and monks, there is in some quarters a view that, while recommended to lay followers, it is forbidden to monks. This controversy started very early after the Buddha’s parinibb?na and has reverberated throughout the centuries till the present time. Its source is in the Mah?parinibb?na Sutta, and it stems from the ambiguity in the (...)

    Yoga and the Rg Veda: An Interpretation of the Keśin Hymn : Karel Werner.Karel Werner - 1977 - Religious Studies 13 (3):289-302.
    The mystical experiences of the ṛṣis , the spiritual giants of the early Vedic times, led to the creation of the Vedic hymns and eventually to the formation of the whole elaborate structure of the Vedic religion, as upheld by the Indian priesthood. But there were obviously others who pursued mystical experiences without themselves engaging, like the ancient ṛṣis , in attempts to transmit their experiences through mythological poetry and religious leadership. They adopted mystical ecstasy as their way of life. (...)
