Paths to enlightenment : Theravada Buddhism in Upper Burma by Juliane Schober( )

8 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 17 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

"Buddhist Manuscript Cultures" 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. Collectively, the book offers cross-cultural and comparative insights into the transmission of Buddhist knowledge and the use of texts and images as ritual objects in the artistic and aesthetic traditions of Buddhist cultures. Drawing on case studies from India, Gandhara, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Mongolia, China and Nepal, the chapters included investigate the range of interests and values associated with producing and using written texts, and the roles manuscripts and images play in the transmission of Buddhist texts and in fostering devotion among Buddhist communities. The 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
