 A Survey of Buddhist Temples and Monasteries  Akhtar Malik A Survey of Buddhist Temples and Monasteries   $192.49  $144.37  Buy Now 
A history of Buddhist Architecture is a task for the future; may we some day have the pleasure of welcoming a systematic treatise upon the subject. Nothing guarantees us that in its beginnings the Architecture shall be found on a level with the doctrine, or that it shall follow a parallel course, or again that it shall develop with a proportional rapidity. The foundation of Buddhism in our sub-continent is an historic phenomenon. Based on truth, purity of life, non-possession and... 
 A Treasury of Mahayana Sutras  Garma C.C. Chang A Treasury of Mahayana Sutras   $31.99  $23.99  Buy Now

Yet despite this increased attention and enormous following, translations of Mahayana scriptures have been scarce and...

Vasubandhu’s Abhidharmakosa-Bhasya (ca. 380-390), besides its culminating achievement in streamlining the overall structure of the exposition of the preceding Abhidharma manuals, is unmatched by any of the preceding manuals in respect of its comprehensiveness – incorporating all important Vaibhasika doctrines since the time of the Abhidharma-mahavibhasa – of its excellent skill in definition and elucidation, and of its ability to clarify the difficult points involved in...

This makes it one of the oldest religions practiced today.  Throughout this period, the religion evolved as it encountered...

The author traces its origin to primitive magic and its development. Narrating the rise of Vajrayana and its place of origin, along with the...

This Sinhala recension of the Anagatavamsa, here translated into English for the first time, is but one of several texts forming a genre of Buddhist apocalyptic literature generated by the cult of Maitreya in South and South-east Asia.

Apparitions of the Self is a groundbreaking investigation into what is known in Tibet as "secret autobiography," an exceptional, rarely studied literary genre that presents a personal exploration of intimate religious experiences. In this volume, Janet Gyatso translates and studies the outstanding pair of secret autobiographies by the famed Tibetan Buddhist visionary, Jigme Lingpa (1730-1798), whose poetic and self-conscious writings are as much about the nature of his own identity,... 
 Approaching the Land of Bliss: Religious Praxis in the Cult of Amitabha  Richard K. Payne Approaching the Land of Bliss: Religious Praxis in the Cult of Amitabha   $31.99  $23.99  Buy Now 
The discourse on Buddhist studies has traditionally been structured around texts and nations (the transmission of Buddhism from India to China to Japan). And yet, it is doubtful that these categories reflect in any significant way the organizing themes familiar to most Buddhists. It could be argued that cultic practices associated with particular buddhas and bodhisattvas are more representative of the way Buddhists conceive of their relation to tradition. This volume aims to explore this... 
 Asceticism and Healing in Ancient India: Medicine in the Buddhist Monastery  Kenneth G. Zysk Asceticism and Healing in Ancient India: Medicine in the Buddhist Monastery   $30.99  $23.24  Buy Now 
The rich Indian medical tradition is usually traced back to Sanskrit sources, the earliest of which cannot much antedate the common era. In this book, Asceticism and Healing in Ancient India, Kenneth Zysk shows that Buddhist scriptures, some centuries older their Sanskrit relatives, contain abundant information about medical practice and are our earliest evidence for a rational approach to medicine in India. He argues that Buddhism and the medical tradition were mutually supportive: that...
