Description
 
The story of the introduction of Buddhism to China is a fascinating account of the meeting of two great civilizations of Asia: India, the land of the Buddha’s birth, & China, where Buddhism was transformed into a world religion, & from where the Buddha’s teachings eventually spread to Korea & Japan. Ikeda spins a lively narrative of the great Buddhist missionaries & translators, the first Chinese Buddhist leaders, the domestication of Buddhism & development of distinctly Chinese schools of Buddhism -- with special emphasis on the T’ien-t’ai school, which was later so influential in Japan -- & the eventual decline of the religion in China after harsh persecution in the 10th century. Maps.
