About the Author:

Gregory Schopen is Rush C. Hawkins Professor of Religious Studies at Brown University and Professor of Buddhist Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. In addition to his international appointments, Schopen has served on the faculties of Indiana University, Bloomington, and the University of Texas, Austin. His publications include Bones, Stones, and Buddhist Monks (1997), Buddhist Monks and Business Matters(2004), and Figments and Fragments of Mahayana Buddhism in India (2005), all published by the University of Hawai'i Press.

Review:

Witty and always provocative. . . . Schopen has the uncanny knack for making seemingly bland rock inscriptions and short passages from understudied ancient Buddhist manuscripts speak volumes about the lived world of Indian Buddhism. (History of Religions)

Gregory Schopen has been the most influential scholar in Buddhist Studies in the last quarter century, and rightly so. (Journal of the American Academy of Religion)

Gregory Schopen is undeniably one of the most important contributors to the evolving understanding of Indian Mahāyāna Buddhism. His challenging and rigorous scholarship is accomplished not only by means of canonical textual analysis, but by studies of art, inscriptions, and other material culture as well. (Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses)
