The Spirit with which this book has been written is one of profound respect for Gautama Buddha. Buddhists of South East Asia, where this edition is being published, should find in this book much that will provoke thought. Most importantly, they will find nothing in it which, viewed objectively, should cause offense.
". . . What struck me most while reading Imran's magnificent book was the lucidity of, and clarity in, the treatment and almost awe-inspiring simplicity of style with which the argument has been presented by the author at first to expound and then to critically appraise what, after all, is a highly complex philosophical conception of religion by which a considerable bulk of humanity of today claims to regulate its life....the principal points made in this book tend to show an amazing and original mind at work. For that reason this book is likely to be ranked as one of the most significant contributions that have been made to the literature of comparative religion...." [A. K. Brohi, an eminent Muslim jurist]

for garg and goyle:GARG- fierce, angry, bitetr.GOYLE : a steep narrow valley : ravine, gully. A goyle is a perverted and often smelly man, they have also been known to have a very short temper and can also perform magic.There will be more, but I may have to stop obsessing on Gargoyles for a couple days and think of other things while I break for Christmas. Wishing all of you a very happy one! Thanks for all the cool names, this has been fun. I have to go back and read some of them again, I know Mr. Snow had one I loved but I'll have to look it up. And I also love Guard and Ian, and so many others. Hi Morwenna!

Fred, love the story! I was once driving troguhh the Anza-Borrego desert, east of San Diego, when there appeared in the middle of my road troguhh-the-middle-of-nowhere a coyote and a crow having a conversation. They were standing right on the line down the center of the road. There was no road kill in site and they were nose to nose. I stopped for several minutes while they conducted their business and then the crow took flight and the coyote trotted off into the creosote bushes and out of sight. That moment I sat in my car eyeballing that unlikely pair has always stuck in my mind. What were they talking about? I had to wonder if a hyperspace bypass might be headed that way sometime soon. I think there is much more to animals than we like to give them credit for. Thanks for sharing your story, and for a great contest that really got the creative juices flowing!

I'm still here, watching like a gloaryge (and smiling and cheering a good deal more at these wonderful names!) I'm in the midst of a busy day of work, but I will surely be posting the contest results soon! It may be late tonight, or it may be tomorrow, depending on how soon I can devote the necessary time to the (delightful) task of going once more through the long, long list of entries and selecting the best of the best. You have all done the most extraordinary job with this! We've got enough brilliant names here that we could all write ten books each, all populated with quirky, weird, funny, amazing pairs of characters suggested by these names!Here's a story for you: the other night I came home after dark, parked my car, and on the steps leading to my door, I saw both a skunk and a cat! They seemed to be chatting as they foraged in my yard and in the alley on friendly terms, or at least each unconcerned about the other's presence. My neighborhood is strange indeed!It may be because I just finished reading Roger Zelazny's A Night in the Lonesome October yes, I did indeed finish it in a neat three months! Not too shabby, for me! but it seems to me there are story possibilities there: a skunk and a street-wise alley cat who become friends and work together to defeat evil powers in a gritty Pittsburgh neighborhood. Wouldn't that be cool?
