Description
 
Religious Revival and Cultural Identity
Five leading specialists in Tibetan anthropology and religion conducted case studies in the Tibet Autonomous Region and among the Tibetans of Sichuan and Qinghai provinces. There they observed the revival of the Buddhist heritage in monastic communities and among laypersons at popular pilgrimages and festivals. Demonstrating how that revival must contend with tensions between the Chinese state and the Tibetan government in exile, the authors discuss ways that Tibetan Buddhists are restructuring their religion through a complex process of social, political and economic adaptation.
