Keyword佛教史=Buddhist History;
AbstractBuddhism is a widely diverse religion,with many traditions handed down through the centuries. The newcomer seeking to understand the sometimes contradictory spiritual texts can find it daunting. Skilton unravels these varied religious threads and creates a wonderfully clear and compact look at Buddhist history. From the ancient Indian context to Buddhism in countries beyond,from the Mahayana sutras to Tantra, it presents an account of the religion's development up through the 19th century,its doctrines and schools.

But the study also covers the context in which Buddhism developed,the external events that had an impact on the religion. Using the most recent scholarship available,it reflects on the Buddha and his teachings, the paths to awakening,the development in the Sangha, the Tripitaka and the Abhidharma, the end of Buddhism in India and the practice of Buddhism throughout Asia. A truly enlightening guide.
