[Apologies for cross posting.]


Dear colleagues,

I'm mentioning the availability of a file listing 650 or so journals
containing Buddhist Studies material. The current version can always
be downloaded from here:

 Journals with Buddhist Studies material (Indica et Buddhica)

Each of the titles within the file link directly to bibliographic
details on the Indica et Buddhica site, e.g.:

QUERY>Meat-eating among monastics in early Japanese Buddhism and through the Kamakura

Dear Colleagues,

Can anyone recommend sources regarding meat-eating among monastics in early Japanese Buddhism and up through the Kamakura period?  I am grateful for suggestions in any language, but among secondary sources am particularly seeking those in English since they seem to be most scarce. Thanks very much in advance.

RESOURCE> Khotanese reading group on Skype

    Dear all,

    I would like to start a reading group for Khotanese Buddhist texts on Skype. The Khotanese corpus has been so far studied mostly from a linguistic/philological perspective, but less so from a more general socio-historical and specifically buddhological point of view. In spite of Khotan’s truly pivotal role between the Indian and Chinese worlds, Khotanese Buddhism is still inadequately located in the broader context of contemporary Buddhism.
