"An A-Z dictionary of fifteen hundred terms commonly encountered, and more esoteric, compiled by a team of Buddhist scholars."--Library Journal "This handy, comprehensive volume is an ideal reference tool and resource for all who are interested in the many facets as well as various schools of theory and practice of Buddhist traditions throughout Asia. The dictionary should be a close companion for both the serious student and those developing a new awareness of Buddhist studies."--Dr. Steven Heine, Director of Asian Studies, Florida International University, co-editor of Buddhism in the Modern World: Adaptations of an Ancient Tradition "A useful--indeed essential--source of just the kind of authoritative information any knowledgeable person needs in the post-secular era of today. The material is judiciously selected and helpfully organized for ready access."--Professor Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School, author of The Secular City and Turning East "This is a work no student of religion can dispense with. It is a highly professional, specialized, yet broadly informative book. It is an excellent instrument of knowledge for an essentially pluralistic age."--Ioan P. Couliano, author of Out of This World: Otherworldly Journeys from Gilgamesh to Albert Einstein.
