Buddhism Across Asia: Networks of Material, Intellectual and Cultural Exchange, volume 1 (hard cover
Tansen Sen, ed.
"“Buddhism Across Asia
presents new research on
Buddhism in comprehensive
spati al and temporal terms.
From studies on transmission
networks to exegesis on
doctrinal matt ers, linguisti cs,
rituals and practi ces, insti tuti ons, Buddhist libraries, and the
religion’s interacti ons with politi cal and cultural spheres as well as
the society at large, the volume presents an assemblage of essays
of breathtaking breadth and depth. The goal is to demonstrate
how the transmission of Buddhist ideas serves as a cultural force,
a lynchpin that had connected the societi es of Asia from past to
present. The volume manifests the vitality and maturity of the
fi eld of Buddhist studies, and for that we thank the editor and the
erudite authors.” — Dorothy C. Wong, University of Virginia"
