A founding member of the Theosophical Society, and perhaps the first well-known European to convert to Buddhism, Henry Steel Olcott made a lasting contribution with his Buddhist Catechism of 1881. Seeing Buddhism with a Westernized scientific eye, the work is given in the same question and answer structure used in the Christian Catechism. David McMahan wrote of Olcott that he "allied Buddhism with scientific rationalism in implicit criticism of orthodox Christianity, but went well beyond the tenets of conventional science in extrapolating from the Romantic and Transcendentalist influenced 'occult sciences' of the nineteenth century."

O]ur little book... is addressed to those for whom material progress and augmented means of luxury do not constitute the goal of life... -from the Preface In simple question-and-answer format, this lovely little book explores the basics of Buddhist teachings. Specifically designed for Westerners, this 1920 publication anticipates objections and the need for clarifications from cultural outsides to the faith. Among the questions answered are: What is the Buddhist religion? Who is the Buddha? What is the cause of sorrow, and of death and birth-renewal? What is the knowledge which leads us to salvation? What is Nirvana? What is an evil deed? Are there such occurrences as miracles? and more. This excellent introduction for lay readers sings with clarity and poetry even today. "Subhdra Bhikshu" was the pseudonym of German author and Buddhist scholar FRIEDRICH ZIMMERMANN (1852-1917).

The popularity of this little work is proved by the constant demand for new editions, in English and other languages. In looking over the matter for the present edition, I have found very little to change or to add, for the work seems to present a very fair idea of the contents of Southern Buddhism; and, as my object is never to write an extended essay on the subject, I resist the temptation to wander off into amplifications of details which, however interesting to the student of comparative religion, are useless in a rational scheme of elementary instruction. H. S. Olcott
