about this item

Chinese studies and Buddhist studies scholars from the US, Canada, and Europe provide seven essays that consider the relationship between the Buddhist samgha and the Chinese state. They discuss the life and thought of the early Tang monk Talin and his apologetic mission, scripture, and speeches; the didactic creation of an Indian dynasty in Xuanzang's Xiyu Ji; the monk Huifan and early Tang samgha-state relations; the Buddhist literati-monk Zanning's Topical Compendium of the Buddhist Clergy and his argument for accepting Buddhism as a Chinese religion; the religious ecology of the Mongol Yuan dynasty; the life and religious career of Miaofeng Fudeng; and state and samgha in the Qing period.
