Sacred biography in the Buddhist traditions of South and Southeast Asia by Juliane Schober( )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 2,521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This interdisciplinary collection of essays explores the biographical genre of the Buddhist traditions of South and Southeast Asia. Scholars in the history of religions, anthropology, literature, and art history present a broad range of explorations into sacred biography as an interpretive genre. Each essay makes unique contributions, and the collection as a whole engages methodological and interpretive approaches that are central to scholars of Buddhism and those specializing in the study of South and Southeast Asia. It also provides new insights for general academic audiences who are more broadly concerned with comparative studies and interdisciplinary methodologies in the humanities and social sciences." "The essays investigate both universal and local articulations of Buddhist sacred biography, illustrating the construction of interpretive frames of reference that map salient themes onto diverse contexts: local cosmologies are integrated into universal ones; pristine religious ideals and modes of practice are recreated in the present and in the lives of others; present contexts are explicated in terms of causes in a pristine past; iconic veneration of an absent Buddha allows the community to participate in his continuing biography." "Following the editor's introduction, the essays are divided into four parts. The first focuses on biographies of the Buddha in textual and visual narratives. Part Two explores the extensions of characteristic features of the Buddha biography to individuals and communities portrayed in a broad range of textual sources in the tradition. Depictions of biographical themes in stories of the Buddha's past lives, the Jatakas, and in the biographies of kings are surveyed in Part Three. The final section discusses the articulation of expressions of the biographical genre in local cults and practice."
Modern Buddhist conjunctures in Myanmar : cultural narratives, colonial legacies, and civil society by Juliane Schober( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the moments in the modern history of Myanmar when religion, culture, and politics converge to chart new directions. Arguing against Max Weber's characterization of Buddhism as other-worldly and divorced from politics, this study shows that Buddhist practice necessitates public validation within an economy of merit in which moral action earns future rewards
Buddhist manuscript cultures : knowledge, ritual, and art by Stephen C Berkwitz( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Buddhist Manuscript Culture explores how religious and cultural practices in premodern Asia were shaped by literary and artistic traditions as well as by Buddhist material culture. This study of Buddhist texts focuses on the significance of their material forms rather than their doctrinal contents and examines how and why they were made." "Contributions are by reputed scholars in Buddhist Studies and represent diverse disciplinary approaches from religious studies, art history, anthropology, and history. This book will be of interest to scholars and students working in these fields." --Book Jacket
Therāvada Buddhist encounters with modernity by Juliane Schober( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although recent scholarship has shown that the term 'Theravada' in the familiar modern sense is a nineteenth- and twentieth-century construct, it is now used to refer to the more than 150 million people around the world who practice that form of Buddhism. Buddhist practices such as meditation, amulets, and merit making rituals have always been inseparable from the social formations that give rise to them, their authorizing discourses and the hegemonic relations they create. This book is composed of chapters written by established scholars in Buddhist studies who represent diverse disciplinary approaches from art history, religious studies, history and ethnography. It explores the historical forces, both external to and within the tradition of Theravada Buddhism and discusses how modern forms of Buddhist practice have emerged in South and Southeast Asia, in case studies from Nepal to Sri Lanka, Burma, Cambodia and Southwest China. Specific studies contextualize general trends and draw on practices, institutions, and communities that have been identified with this civilizational tradition throughout its extensive history and across a highly diverse cultural geography. This book foreground diverse responses among Theravadins to the encroaching challenges of modern life ways, communications, and political organizations, and will be of interest to scholars of Asian Religion, Buddhism and South and Southeast Asian Studies
Paths to enlightenment : Theravada Buddhism in Upper Burma by Juliane Schober( )

10 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is based on fieldwork in Mandalay, Burma and on the study of Theravada Buddhist texts. Religious, cultural, and social realities are contrasted with the doctrinal foundations of the Theravada Buddhist tradition taking into account indigenous perceptions and cosmological computations of relationships between religious practice, ritual, texts, and other aspects of socio-cultural formations. Burmese social and religious realities form three separate domains of Theravada Buddhist ritual and practice. They are the laity, the monkhood (samgha), and self-ordained religious virtuosi (htwetyap pauk pouggou) striving for imminent enlightenment. The primary religious obligation of the laity is to provide material support for the physical body (rupakaya) of the Buddhist dispensation. In doing so, the lay community gains merit which, according to Theravada belief, is the basis for its material and spiritual wellbeing. The monastic obligation is to preserve the spiritual body (dhammakaya) of the dispensation through study of the scriptures and practice of the truth (dhamma) as it was conceived by the founder, Gautama Buddha. In this way, the monkhood maintains its ethical purity and acts as a proper source of merit for the laity. Self-ordained ascetics frequently are charismatic cult leaders who embark upon and seek to master a path like that of the founder himself, above and beyond the realizations of enlightenment he had envisioned for his community. These domains share common structural features with regard to cosmological order, the spiritual quest of the individual, the notion of the common good of the community, social and religious principles of hierarchy, and with regard to diversity in practice and uniformity in ritual. Each domain defines parameters for chartering a path to enlightenment (nibbana), based on domain specific conceptions of the bodies (kaya) of the dispensation (sasana) and structured analogously to Theravada texts. Yet, they differ in content and meaning of religious practice, ritual and the path chartered
