From its foundations and scripture to rituality, spirituality, aesthetics and ethics, this is a complete undergraduate guide to the study of Buddhism. Part of the "Studying World Religions" series, this is an essential guide to the study of Buddhism. Clearly structured to cover all the major areas of study, including chapters on how Buddhism has been studied, foundations and scripture, types of Buddhism, ethics, rituals and spirituality, and aesthetics, this is the ideal study aid for those approaching this religion for the first time. Rather than attempting to cover all the material, the critical and methodological issues that students need to grasp in the study of Buddhism - and religion in general - are drawn out, and the major contemporary debates explored. Readers are offered the chance to engage with this religious tradition as a diverse, living phenomenon. With helpful suggestions for further study, pointing students towards material such as primary sources (scriptures), films and novels and including ideas for teaching, discussion topics and exercises, "Studying Buddhism" is the perfect companion for the fledgling student. A series of introductory guides, books in the "Studying World Religions" series are designed as study aids for those approaching the world's religions for the first time. Rather than attempting to cover all the material, the critical and methodological issues that students need to grasp in the study of each religious tradition - and religion in general - are drawn out, and the major contemporary debates explored.
