    The Buddha and his Indian context -- Early Buddhist teachings : rebirth and karma -- Early Buddhist teachings : the four true realities for the spiritually ennobled -- Early developments in Buddhism -- Mahayana philosophies : the varieties of emptiness -- Mahayana holy beings, and Tantric Buddhism -- The later history and spread of Buddhism -- Buddhist practice : devotion -- Buddhist practice : ethics -- Buddhist practice : the Sangha -- Buddhist practice : meditation and cultivation of experience-based wisdom -- The modern history of Buddhism in Asia -- Buddhism beyond Asia.
    This book is a comprehensive introduction to Buddhist tradition as it has developed in three major cultural areas in Asia, and to Buddhism as it is now developing in the West. It not only explores the world views of the religion but also attempts to show how Buddhism functions as a set of practices. It thus includes chapters on devotion, ethics, monastic practices and meditation. Such practices are related to Buddhist teachings and historical developments. Emphasizing as it does the diversity found within different Buddhist traditions, the book aims throughout to underline common threads of belief, practice and historical continuities which unify the Buddhist world. --From publisher's description.
