    Abstract

    The notion of Buddhism as a unifying category for the essays in this book is a heuristic one, and it does not imply a deep structure or enduring essence that unifies the various manifestations of the faith from its origins to the present. Rather, it is intended as a wideranging and thematic entry into the field for nonspecialist readers interested in an introduction that does not pretend to be comprehensive, but rather surveys issues and figures that have influenced developments and prompted new doctrines and practices.
