Synopsis:

This book begins with Buddhism's involvement in the culture and thought of India, and observes its moves into other, very different contexts: China, Southeast Asia, Tibet, Japan, and even the West, to a limited extent. The book accepts the diversity within Buddhism, giving roughly equal treatment to its two major traditions -- the Theravada and the Mahayana. KEY TOPICS: Probes the philosophy and religion of Buddhism and how they relate to cultural traditions.
