En este libro, su Santidad el Dalái Lama y l. a. monja budista estadounidense Thubten Chodron trazan convergencias y divergencias entre las dos principales corrientes budistas: las tradiciones sánscritas del Tíbet y Asia Oriental, y las tradiciones palis de Sri Lanka y el Sudeste Asiático.
Los autores se ocupan de las prácticas y los principios centrales del budismo (las cuatro nobles verdades, l. a. práctica de l. a. meditación, el cultivo del amor, el significado del nirvāṇa, entre otras), y ponen de manifiesto cómo las tradiciones coinciden en ocasiones y difieren en otras, en sus interpretaciones. El planteamiento respetuoso de los autores ilumina las muy diversas maneras en que todas las formas de budismo, en su fecunda diversidad, comparten una herencia y unos objetivos comunes.

Is there any ritual which can exempt a subject matter of the emperor? What are the boundaries of the state's strength over human our bodies? Centuries later, Christians had a brand new set of issues of bowing in China, to the emperor and to "idols.” Buddhist and Christian Responses to the Kowtow challenge compares those instances of refusing to bow, discusses glossy theories of obeisance, and at last strikes to check a few modern analogies corresponding to refusing to salute the yankee flag.
Contributing tremendously to the research of the physique and gear, ritual, faith and fabric tradition, this quantity is of curiosity to students and scholars of spiritual experiences, Buddhism, chinese language heritage and fabric culture.
