Buddhism : Introducing the Buddhist Experience


Buddhism: Introducing the Buddhist Experience, Third Edition, focuses on the depth of Buddhist experiences as expressed in the teachings and practices of its religious and philosophical traditions. Taking a more global and inclusive approach than any other introductory text, the book spans more than 2,500 years, offering chapters on Buddhism's origins in India; Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism; Buddhism in Southeast Asia, Tibet, China, Korea, and Japan; and
the globalization of Buddhism with a focus on the United States. The volume is enhanced by substantial selections of primary text material, numerous boxed personal narratives by respected Buddhists and scholars, maps and photos, and six essays on cultural experiences of Buddhism around the world today.


A reframing of Buddhism as a globalized set of traditions embodying a multitude of cultural forms, informed by insights from new coauthor Sarah H. Jacoby

Coverage of second- and third-generation Buddhist youth and the Internet's role in the globalization of Buddhism

A rewritten and more robust chapter on "The Tibetan Experiences of Buddhism" that reflects Jacoby's specialization

New materials on contemporary, socially engaged Buddhist movements in Asia and their new global presence
