 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The twenty chapters of Buddhism Across Asia present the development of Buddhism over a span of 2000 years - from its early integration, to its growth and expansion into multiple centres, up to the age of European expansion. The essays discuss meditation, philosophy, and language, literature, monastic rules, and ritual - dynamic factors in the transmission and translation of intellectual crosscurrents from India throughout Asia. Studies include the emerging field of Gandharan Buddhism and the ever-fascinating Book of Zambasta from ancient Khotan, nodal points that lead on to the transmission of the Buddhist Dharma from Northwest India across Central Asia to the Middle Kingdom. The authors are specialists in the diverse fields of Buddhist studies. In this volume they step beyond their specialisations to address broader questions of cultural exchange and intellectual history. The networks are thus described through conversations between primary sources and the latest methodologies. The contributions interact to constitute an engaging collection of essays that reflects the thematics of the best contemporary scholarship. Buddhism Across Asia is an outstanding and refreshing testament to the dynamic of Buddhism in history and the state of the art of international Buddhist studies.
