This anthology, first published in 1995, illustrates the vast scope of Buddhist practice in Asia, past and present. Re- released now in a slimmer but still extensive edition, "Buddhism in Practice" presents a selection of thirty-five translated texts - each preceded by a substantial introduction by its translator. These unusual sources provide the reader with a sense of the remarkable diversity of the practices of persons who over the course of 2,500 years have been identified, by themselves or by others, as Buddhists. Demonstrating the many continuities among the practices of Buddhist cultures widely separated by both history and geography, "Buddhism in Practice" continues to provide an ideal introduction to Buddhism and a source of new insights for scholars.
