Natalie Rokotoff, the Russian Orientalist, after considerable original researches, wrote in the book Foundation of Buddhism: "Certainly Buddha's knowledge was not limited to his doctrines, but caution prompted by great wisdom made him hesitant to divulge conceptions which, if misunderstood, might be disastrous. A tradition of three circles of his teachings was established for the chosen ones, for members of the monastic fraternity, and for all."
