“Where Is Buddhism?”

(p.193) Postscript
Mourning the Unborn Dead

Jeff Wilson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The postscript reviews the arguments and evidence of the preceding chapters and calls for a more comprehensive approach to studying the Americanization of Buddhism that includes both multiple Buddhist communities and the contributions of non-Buddhists. It also points out how rituals need not be performed in order to have effects: imagining, learning about, or discussing rituals can in some cases be as important and effective as actual performance.
