6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A warm and stimulating book, this text describes the India into which the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the development of his teachings, and then follows the course of Buddhism through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. Far from being a recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his time.

Buddhist trends in Southeast Asia by Trevor Ling( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is more than one sort of Buddhism, even within Southeast Asia. The word "Buddhism", in an unspecified sense, has very little heuristic value, and can be a source of confusion in comparative studies within the Southeast Asian region. Buddhisms are in most cases "country-specific". Where regularities in Buddhist polity and Buddhist social action are found in a given cultural region these may have to be accounted for, not simply by being ascribed to one Buddhist tradition but by similarities of social organization and culture within the region. Major differentiations occur at national levels, that is, at the level of the various countries of Southeast Asia. From the earliest period of Buddhism's history it appears that a certain tension existed between Buddhist practitioners and political rulers. It is with some of these major national or local variant forms of Buddhism in Southeast Asia that the present work is concerned. -- Front book flap
