About Mahayana Buddhist Meditation:
This festschrift volume commemorating the late Richard H. Robinson, founder of the Buddhist Studies program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was compiled in honor of Professor Robinson's contributions to Buddhist studies. It is designed for Buddhologists and the specialized reader in religion and philosophy.
The studies and essays and in this collection represent some of the best of contemporary scholarship in Mahayana Buddhist studies and deal with the theory and practice of Mahayana meditation. The use of original sources and the presentation of previously un-translated material make this collection a significant contribution to the understanding of Buddhist meditation as it developed historically, intellectually, and in actual practice.
