Religions of Tibet in Practice by Donald S. Lopez


Religions of Tibet in Practice by Donald S. Lopez

Originally published in 1997, Religions of Tibet in Practice is a landmark work--the first major anthology on the topic ever produced. This new edition--abridged to further facilitate course use--presents a stunning array of works that together offer an unparalleled view of the Tibetan religious landscape over the centuries. Organized thematically, the twenty-eight chapters are testimony to the vast scope of religious practice in the Tibetan world, past and present. Religions of Tibet in Practice remains a work of great value to scholars, students, and general readers.


Praise for Princeton's previous edition: Religions of Tibet in Practice is by far the richest sourcebook of Tibetan texts available and will reward both the specialist and the patient general reader. --Roger Jackson, Religious Studies Review Praise for Princeton's previous edition: [A] valuable contribution to the study of Tibetan religion and culture. --Amy Lavine, Journal of Religion Praise for Princeton's previous edition: The anthology is replete with fascinating, important, material; and--remarkably for a work with so many authors--uniformly well-written. Anyone interested in gaining an overall sense of what constitutes Tibetan religious thought in all its multifarious ramifications could hardly have a more helpful introduction. --David Hicks, Asian Thought and Society Praise for Princeton's previous edition: This anthology on Tibetan religions is a first of its kind... [The contributors] are among the best in the growing field... Significant and groundbreaking. --Choice
