Автор: Keown, D.
Since its origins in India over two thousand years ago, Buddhism has not only spread throughout Asia, but also around the world.
In this new edition of the Very Short Introduction to Buddhism, Damien Keown looks at how the tradition began and how it evolved into its present-day form. Explaining its central teachings and practices as well as key topics such as karma and rebirth, mediation and ethics, Keown also includes updates relating to the evolution of Buddhism within Asia and the West, the importance of material culture, and the ethics of war and peace.
