Buddhism in Canada, Hardback Book

Description

Buddhism has become a major religion in Canada over the last half-century.

The 'ethnic Buddhism' associated with immigrant Asian people is the most important aspect, but there is also a growing constituency of Euro-Canadian Buddhists seriously interested in the faith.

This insightful study analyzes the phenomenon of Buddhism in Canada from a regional perspective.

The work provides an important examination of the place of Buddhism in a developed western country associated with a traditional Judeo-Christian culture, but undergoing profound sociological transformation due to large-scale immigration and religio-cultural pluralism. It is a valuable text for students of religion, Buddhism and North American Studies.
