  • Examines relevant social, political, and transcultural contexts, and places an emphasis on Japanese Buddhist discourses and material culture

  • Informed by the most recent research, including the latest Japanese and Western scholarship
  • Illustrates the richness and complexity of Japanese Buddhism as a lived religion, offering readers a glimpse into the development of this complex and often misunderstood tradition
