Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "Buddhism in Practice . . . constitute[s] a benchmark of where Buddhist studies has been, and where it is going. By endeavoring to break the circularity of the knowledge process, by which we recognize as 'Buddhist' only what we already think of as Buddhist, Lopez has opened a new course for a self-reflexive Buddhology."--Timothy Brook, Journal of Asian Studies
Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "Like an all-star professional athletic team, the contributors to this volume bring credentials as world famous scholars of Buddhism. . . . [This] anthology contains a variety that shatters the narrowness of previous collections of texts."--William Huntley, Education About ASIA
From the Back Cover
Praise for Princeton's previous edition:"These selections consistently reveal new vistas on the Buddhist landscape or illuminate old views from new angles."--John S. Strong, Bates College

If someone reads this before developing a familiarity with the beautiful philosophical side of Buddhism, he or she runs the risk of coming away dissilusioned and thinking that Buddhism is too steeped in religiosity and obsession with ritual to have much philosophical merit.
