Through ethnographic and comparative inquiry, nine anthropologists and one historian examine ideological and social diminsions of merit and blessing in mainland Southeast Asia. Merit is central to Buddhism of the lowland peoples and to the feasts of merit of some upland tribal groups. Blessing also features in both lowland and upland contexts. This volume explores similarities and differences in Buddhist merit and merit of feasts of merit, as well as in blessing of lowland and upland religions.
