The subject matter described in this book is very helpful in the fulfillment of the necessities of the society. The language and style of this book is very attractive and easy to be understood by the readers. It is nice source of knowedge about the significance of Buddhist ethics. This is an admirable academic work in the field of Buddhist Studies, Pali and Ethics.

After the publication of eleven books, I decided to write such book which could be helpful to know the significance of Buddhist ethics for the seeker of knowledge. Hence, I started my work on Buddhist ethics and Gautam Buddha's ethical teachings. Based on His original teachings, I wrote this book to explain the role of His ethical teachings in the achievement of happy and peaceful life. Because of this pure thought, I worked hard with concentration and dedication to complete it. I tried to cover all the essential topics to explain the moral values and the ethical teachings of Gautam Buddha under the title of Human Values and Buddhist Ethics. My firm determination and the blessings of triple gems made my efforts successful and my book is before you.
It is my great pleasure to say that I have been honoured by Hon'ble Vice President of India Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu in New Delhi on 4th April 2019 with 'Presidential Award of Maharshi Badrayan Vyas Samman' for the outstanding contribution in the field of Pali language & literature. I also had been awarded with `Vividh Puraskar 'by Hon'ble Governor of Uttar Pradesh Shri Ram Naik and Hon'ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Shri Yogi Adityanath on 7th February 2018 for my edited & translated work Namarapasamasa.
It is true that Gautam Buddha preached His teachings for the establishement of an ideal society and described ethical values as its foundation. Buddhism draws attention to the practice of morality for the welfare of every living being and the lesson of morality given by Gautam Buddha is considered as Buddhist ethics. That is why; Gautam Buddha has emphasized on the practice of moral values in His several discourses. Having understood the need and relevance of these ethics, this book attempts to highlight the ethical teachings of Gautam Buddha which are very useful and practical in modern society. With the help of the original teachings of Gautam Buddha, I tried to explain Buddhist ethics and its role.
