Encyclopedia of Buddhism
In approximately 700 A-to-Z entries, Encyclopedia of Buddhism provides easy access to the terms, concepts, personalities, historical events, institutions, and movements that helped shape the history of Buddhism and the way it is practiced today. Although the primary focus of the encyclopedia is clearly on Buddhism in all its forms, it also provides introductions to Daoism, Shinto, Confucianism, and other religious practices in East and Southeast Asia.
A comprehensive introduction that provides an overview of the tradition, a chronology, cross-references, further readings, a bibliography, a thorough index, and approximately 60 black-and-white photographs complete this volume. This easy-to-use and essential encyclopedia is ideal for high school and college students, researchers, and general readers.
