AbstractWith over 2,000 wide-ranging entries, this dictionary is the most up-to-date and comprehensive of its kind.
Written by a leading expert in the field and incorporating research by regional specialists, this new dictionary covers both
historical and contemporary issues in Buddhism and includes all Buddhist schools and cultures. Elegantly illustrated with
line drawings of religious structures, iconography, and ritual objects, The Dictionary of Buddhism includes entries on the
history and doctrines of the major Buddhist schools, information on the spread of Buddhism in Asia and the West, and
coverage of issues of contemporary concern such as human rights, abortion, euthanasia, and the role of women in Buddhist
teachings. An ultimate reference, the dictionary also contains appendices that include a chronology of important dates, a
guide to canonical scriptures, and a pronunciation guide for difficult names and terms. Beliefs, doctrines, major teachers
and scholars, place names, and artifacts are all covered in a clear and concise style making The Dictionary of Buddhism an
invaluable source for anyone seeking information on Buddhism, from students of religion and related disciplines to
practicing Buddhists.
