9780028657196: Encyclopedia of Buddhism: 1

This encyclopedia is a historically focused work that provides an introduction to the doctrinal, ethical, social and spiritual ideas that inform the various traditions of Buddhism and the changes they have undergone over more that 2500 years. It discusses the teachings and writings that form the basis of Buddhist studies; traces the history of Buddhism as one of Asia's most important cultural forces and investigates its sweeping influence on art, literature and politics. It covers major Buddhist texts, doctrines, institutions and individuals; liturgy, ritual and training; movements, sects and social relations; and other issues of faith, practice and history, while relating Buddhist concepts to Western thinking about religion and society.
