BOOK REVISION> Errata for the first edition 2000: The Fundamental Teachings of Early Buddhism

Dear Colleagues,

The following are 'errata' for the book, The Fundamental Teachings of Early Buddhism, which I first published in 2000 by Harrassowitz Verlag. The errata may be useful for those who have the book and are interested in the field of studies in Early Buddhism. 


With Kind regards,

QUERY> Ethnographies of Buddhism

Good day.

I am interested in identifying journal or book length ethnographies about Buddhism as specifically related to:

  • Theravada
  • Sri Lankan Buddhism
  • Buddhism/Buddhists in non-Buddhist cultures
  • Buddhism in Muslim/Islamic societies

Anything you know of and might help me to find would be greatly appreciated.
