Description
 
This volume resulted from a conference on Buddhist soteriology that was held at the University of California, Los Angeles, from June 25-30, 1988. The contributors here have undertaken a manifold investigation of the primary Buddhist concept or category of marga-"the path". The purpose is twofold: to clarify the range of the concept's meaning and significance within Buddhism, and to suggest ways in which it might prove useful in the cross-cultural study of religion an din the study of religions other than Buddhism. A focus on Buddhism is thought especially appropriate because as a potentially cross-cultural category for the study of religions the concept of "the path" has been given in Buddhism an explication more sustained, comprehensive, critical and sophisticated than that provided by any other single religious tradition.

Paths to Liberation: The Marga and Its Transformations in Buddhist Thought, Robert E. Buswell, Jr. and Robert M. Gimello, Motilal, Hardcover, 525 pages, $22.00.
