Shomakhmadov S. Vyākaraṇa as a Method of Rational Cognition in the Buddhist Written Sources // Written Monuments of the Orient, 1(9) 2019. P. 24—36.


The article is devoted to the substantiation of the statement that the Buddhist vyākaraṇa is the method of rational ‘forecast’ and at the same time the ‘fore-knowledge’ (from Greek prognosis) itself. The proofs that the conventional meaning ‘prophecy’ is invalid are given. The reasons of the opinion that vyākaraṇa is the ‘prognosis’ are based of Buddhist canonical and post-canonical texts. Vyākaraṇa as the dialectical method of the Buddhist philosophy allows to model the scheme of the good conduct that leads to the obtaining of the final goal of the Buddhist spiritual practice — the attainment of nirvāṇa.
