Buddhism in East Asia

D.P. Singhal (Author)
Synopsis It is a work which will be of interest to the layman and scholar alike since it surveys the process by which Buddhism travelled from the land of its birth to Central Asia, China, Korea and Japan. It tells the fascinating story of numerous Buddhist scholars, who travelled thousands of miles across the continent, sometimes over completely uncharted terrain, to carry Buddhist teachings to the farthest corners of Asia. The work describes the interaction of Buddhism with the indigenous cultures and traditions of the countries of East Asia especially in the area of philosophy, literature, architecture, sculpture and painting to create the unique civilizations of Eastern Asia. Finally, the book also traces the history of Buddhism in the countries of Eastern Asia down to contemporary times and shows how Buddhism has adapted itself to its changing environment and has survived as a vital force which has enriched the lives of millions of people in these countries.
