Buddhism Between Tibet and China

Buddhism Between Tibet and China

from Matthew Kapstein

As Tibet enters into its fiftieth year of Chinese rule, questions of cultural distinctions and similarities become ever more important in determining the future of the relationship between the Snow Lion and the Red Dragon.

Setting political agenda aside, Buddhism Between Tibet and China features a collection of noteworthy essays that probe the nature of this relationship, from the Tang Dynasty (618–907 CE) to the present.

Includes contributions from Rob Linrothe, Karl Debreczeny, Elliot Sperling, Paul Nietupski, Carmen Meinert, Gray Tuttle, Zhihua Yao, Ester Bianchi, Fabienne Jagou, Abraham Zablocki, and Matthew Kapstein.

Matthew Kapstein is Numata Professor of Buddhist Studies at the University of Chicago. He is co-translator of the late H.H. Dujom Rinpoche's The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism
