Description
 
Specialists in Buddhist philosophy, art, and history of religion outline the major ideas and controversies surrounding the Lotus Sutra and map its manifestations in ritual performance, ascetic practice, visual representations, and social action. Essays survey the Indian context in which the sutra was produced, its compilation and translation history, and its influence across China and Japan. A Chinese and Japanese character glossary, notes on Western translations of the text, and a synoptic bibliography round out the volume.
