Rather than offering a superficial overview to the philosophies of Buddhism, this reference focuses on the history and theology that underpin its major tenets. Moving across millennia as well as nations, the study investigates key principles and traditions—including the monastic life, Tantra, and pilgrimage—and describes their origins and modern manifestations. Various anecdotes are provided throughout the text in order to illustrate important doctrines.

A lo largo del texto se explican varias anécdotas para demostrar la importancia de las doctrinas.
