    “This volume invites readers to understand what it can mean to be Buddhist in manifold ways.  Rather than approaching Buddhism as an abstract entity by means of investigating ideas and practices that form a coherent and fixed system, these humanistic accounts enable one to situate and to comprehend various ways in which people have actually... more...

    DRP Rosenkreuz Verlag 2013; US$ 6.18

  • Minding the Earth, Mending the Worldby Susan Murphy

    Counterpoint 2014; US$ 16.95

    Shunryu Suzuki Roshi founded the San Francisco Zen Center in 1962, and after fifty years we have seen a fine group of Zen masters trained in the west take up the mantle and extend the practice of Zen in ways that might have been hard to imagine in those first early years. Susan Murphy, one of Robert Aitken?s students and dharma heirs, is one of the... more...

  • Women in P?li Buddhismby Pascale Engelmajer

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    The P?li tradition presents a diverse and often contradictory picture of women. This book examines women?s roles as they are described in the P?li canon and its commentaries. Taking into consideration the wider socio-religious context and drawing from early brahmanical literature and epigraphical findings, it contrasts these descriptions with the... more...

  • The Philosophy of Desire in the Buddhist Pali Canonby David Webster

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    David Webster explores the notion of desire as found in the Buddhist Pali Canon. Beginning by addressing the idea of a 'paradox of desire', whereby we must desire to end desire, the varieties of desire that are articulated in the Pali texts are examined. A range of views of desire, as found in Western thought, are presented as well as Hindu and Jain... more...

  • The Concept of the Buddhaby Guang Xing

    Guang Xing gives an analysis of one of the fundamental Mahayana Buddhist teachings, namely the three bodies of the Buddha (the trikaya Theory), which is considered the foundation of Mahayana philosophy. He examines how and why the philosophical concept of three bodies was formed, particularly the Sambhogakaya , which is the Buddha to be worshipped... more...

  • Skilful Meansby Michael Pye

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    'Skilful Means' is the key principle of Mahayana, one of the great Buddhist traditions.

His strategies or interventions are 'skilful means' - morally wholesome tricks devised for the purpose... more...

  • The Notion of Ditthi in Theravada Buddhismby Paul Fuller

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 48.95

    The notion of 'view' or 'opinion' ( ditthi ) as an obstacle to 'seeing things as they are' is a central concept in Buddhist thought. This book considers the two ways in which the notion of views are usually understood. Are we to understand right-view as a correction of wrong-views (the opposition understanding) or is the aim of the Buddhist path the... more...

  • The Buddhist Theory of Self-Cognitionby Zhihua Yao

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    This highly original work explores the concept of self-awareness or self-consciousness in Buddhist thought. Its central thesis is that the Buddhist theory of self-cognition originated in a soteriological discussion of omniscience among the Mahasamghikas, and then evolved into a topic of epistemological inquiry among the Yogacarins. To illustrate this... more...
