Description About the author
 
Over the course of nearly half a century, Robert A. F. Thurman has left an indelible mark on numerous fields of study, including Buddhist literature, Tantric Buddhism, Tibetan Studies, and the comparative sciences of mind. To celebrate his seventieth birthday, Thurmanís students and colleagues have come together to pay tribute to these contributions and to Thurmanís ongoing leadership in these fields by assembling a collection of essays of their own that extend and supplement his groundbreaking research.
In Vimalakirtiís House is the result of this collaboration and represents a broad spectrum of cutting edge studies in areas central to Thurmanís own scholarly project. The resulting volume is itself a kind of ďtreasury of the Buddhist sciences,Ē insofar as its authors explore wide-ranging problems in art, literature, epistemology, history, ritual, buddhology, and lexicography.
