SHIN BUDDHISM : Historical, Textual, and Interpretive Studies
Edited by Richard K. Payne
Hardbound book with 397 pages.
The Institute of Buddhist Studies, based in Berkeley, California, has for many years received generous support from the Numata family, founder of Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai (Society for the Promotion of Buddhism) and the Numata Center for Buddhist Translation and Research. In 1986 Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai established the Numata Endowment, which has provided support for many guest lecturers and visiting scholars over the last twenty years. In addition, Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai also supports publication of the Institute's journal, Pacific World: Journal of the Institute of Buddhist Studies. It seems fitting, therefore, to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the establishment of the Numata Endowment with the publication of this collection of exemplary essays from Pacific World.
