Romantic Dharma charts the emergence of Buddhism into European consciousness during the nineteenth century. Mark S. Lussier probes the shared ethical and intellectual commitments embedded in Buddhist and Romantic thought, and proposes potential ways by which those insights translate into contemporary critical and pedagogical practices. Mapping the movement of European colonial institutions and individuals across the Himalayan regions of India, Nepal, and Tibet and the reverse flow of textual materials to Europe, this enlightening study identifies shared strategies for alleviating the suffering of all sentient beings. Ultimately, Romantic Dharma reveals an engaged Romanticism, integral to historical encounters, textual intersections, and current concerns.
