A POPULAR DICTIONARY OF BUDDHISM
This book, a dictionary as well as a glossary, attempts to cover the entire field of Buddhism. Its terms, chosen from seven languages spoken in ten countries in at least ten major schools of Buddhism, are those that readers are most likely to find in books on Buddhism. Also included are brief biographies of eminent Buddhists and scholars from both East and West, which will provide a ready reference to authorities normally cited. A Popular Dictionary of Buddhism is a useful compilation and a key religious, ethical, and philosophical reference work in an area of study that commands increasing attention in Western society.
