Contemporary Issues in Buddhist Studies Series

This series was initiated in 2007 as a joint project of the Institute of Buddhist Studies and what was then the Numata Center for Buddhist Translation and Research, now BDK America. The scope of the series is broadly defined, so as to include the full range of the Buddhist tradition at all periods in its development, and of methodological approaches to the study of the tradition.
