Unmasking Buddhism

Bernard Faure, "Unmasking Buddhism"
Wiley-Blackwell | 2009 | ISBN: 1405180641 | 168 pages | PDF | 1,5 MB

"An ideal introduction to the tradition that debunks many of the Orientialist stereotypes by relentlessly highlighting the complexity and diversity of Buddhism in its localized and ritualized forms. It serves as an excellent way for readers to understand the work of one of the leading and groundbreaking scholars of Buddhist studies of this generation."
–Steven Heine, Florida International University

"Many people know something about Buddhism, but, for interesting historical reasons, much of what they know is wrong. In Unmasking Buddhism, Bernard Faure offers a clear catalogue of these misconceptions and then compassionately dispels the darkness of ignorance."
–Donald S. Lopez, University of Michigan
