Buddhist Monks and Business Matters: Still More Papers on Monastic Buddhism in India
- About the Book
This is the second in a series of collected essays by one of today’s most distinguished scholars of Indian Buddhism. (Publication of a third collection is planned in early 2005.) In these articles, all save one published in various places from 1994 through 2001, Gregory Schopen once again displays the erudition and originality that have contributed to a major shift in the way that Indian Buddhism is perceived, understood, and studied.
