Beskrivning

Buddhism is a concise and readable survey of the history of Buddhism from its roots in India to its spread across South and East Asia and its present day manifestation in Europe and America.

Focusing particularly on the modern period, it provides a valuable introduction to the different paths of Buddhism-the beliefs and practices-and looks at the ways in which this religion is meeting the challenges of the modern world.

Written in an accessible and informative style, and assuming little or no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, this book gives a basic introduction to the faith-its history, beliefs, and practices.

Provides valuable pedagogy, including:

timeline

maps

glossary

list of sacred days/festivals; suggested reading

pronunciation guide

index

feature boxes focusing on some aspects of the arts

11 black and white pictures and artworks
