One of "Choice"'s Outstanding Academic Titles Top 25 Academic Books for 2014

Winner of the 2015 Dartmouth Medal, Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association

One of "Choice"'s Outstanding Academic Titles Top 25 Academic Books for 2014

"Buddhism's ancient history and depth of culture are reflective in this volume's extensiveness. . . . Owing to the length and breadth of this volume, this will supersede previously published titles such as Damien Keown's "Oxford Dictionary of Buddhism.""--Ray Arnett, "Library Journal" (Starred Review)

"One of the take-a ways is how we're just scratching the surface on what we have translated into English. I almost regret the decision I made about 25 years ago not to shift my focus from training to learning languages so I could be a Buddhist scholar. Particularly, I was struck by how little I know about the Korean tradition! Except for Buswell's work, there's still very little translated into English, as far as I know."--Dosho Port, "Wild Fox Zen"

"As the most comprehensive collection of discrete Buddhist terms available, this resource is an outstanding addition to available reference sources. . . . Highly recommended for theological, academic, and large public libraries."--Christopher McConnell, "Booklist"

"[T]he dictionary includes an impressive set of reference tools. . . . Much more than a compilation of the philosophies of elite Buddhist figures, the "Dictionary" deepens our understanding of local traditions and their unique approaches to Buddhist practice, offering glimpses into the many Buddhisms and Buddhist belief systems that have developed over the past two and a half millennia. Both professional and amateur scholars will want to keep "The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism" within easy reach."--Rory Lindsay, "Buddhadharma"

"This encyclopedic dictionary by Buswell and Lopez likely will become an essential resource for students and scholars of Buddhism. It has over 5,000 entries varying in length from a paragraph to a full page."--"Choice"

"This Dictionary of Buddhism . . . deserves recognition as a highly useful and worthwhile contribution to the field. Its breadth of coverage and its clear and convenient style of presentation make it a valuable reference source for researchers, teachers, and students in Buddhist Studies, and for more general readers as well."--Choong Mun-keat, "Reviews of Books"

"This is a one-of-a-kind reference book that will not be replicated in this generation's lifetime."--Brad Lee Eden, "Reference Reviews"

""The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism" is a huge contribution to the field of Buddhist studies in English. . . . The ease with which concepts can be searched and connected, the ambitious scope, accessible writing style, and detailed scholarship combine to make this single volume dictionary an invaluable reference tool for scholars, students, and practitioners of Buddhism."--Leesa S. Davis, "Sophia"

With more than 5,000 entries totaling over a million words, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of Buddhism ever produced in English. It is also the first to cover terms from all of the canonical Buddhist languages and traditions: Sanskrit, Pali, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Unlike reference works that focus on a single Buddhist language or school, The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism bridges the major Buddhist traditions to provide encyclopedic coverage of the most important terms, concepts, texts, authors, deities, schools, monasteries, and geographical sites from across the history of Buddhism. The main entries offer both a brief definition and a substantial short essay on the broader meaning and significance of the term covered. Extensive cross-references allow readers to find related terms and concepts. An appendix of Buddhist lists (for example, the four noble truths and the thirty-two marks of the Buddha), a timeline, six maps, and two diagrams are also included.

Written and edited by two of today's most eminent scholars of Buddhism, and more than a decade in the making, this landmark work is an essential reference for every student, scholar, or practitioner of Buddhism and for anyone else interested in Asian religion, history, or philosophy.

5 Sterne für den Inhalt - aber Finger weg vom Kindle Ebook, wenn Sie wissenschaftlich arbeiten wollen und hoffen, aus dem Buch zitieren zu können. Erstens ist das "Copy and Paste" nicht möglich, zweitens gibt es in der Kindle-Version keine Seitenzahlen - es ist echt schwierig, da eine geeignete Zitationsform zu finden. Hätte für die Form des Ebooks am liebsten nur einen Stern vergeben.
Auch die Umwandlung des Formats mit diversen Hilfsprogrammen, die im Internet erhältlich sind, schlägt fehl; zumindest klappt die Umwandlung der zahlreichen Diakritika nicht. Und Seitenzahlen und Copy und Paste gibt es dadurch ja auch noch nicht.
Bei diesem Nachschlagewerk wird nicht mehr zu jedem Lemma der Autor/die Autorin angezeigt (anders als bei Buswells Encyclopedia of Buddhism von 2004).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Helps Fill In Critical Gaps in Buddhist References 31. Dezember 2013
Von Doug M - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I recently obtained this book because I was looking for critical and often missing information about Buddhist schools in China (San-lun and Tian-tai) and about Vietnamese Buddhism. I heard that the book also had a lot of Korean Buddhist references that you can't find in other dictionaries, which I needed as well.

The book definitely doesn't disappoint. It is a pretty thick tome, and has entries for Chinese, Korean, Tibetan, Sanskrit, Japanese, Burmese Buddhism and so on. How many dictionaries do you know have Burmese Buddhist entries in them? Often times, the same entry will have the word in various languages so one can compare. This is pretty helpful for CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) Buddhist terms as they're often shared but differ slightly in pronunciation.

As other reviewers noted, the entries often contain excellent depth. The entry on Vietnamese "Thien" Buddhism is the first actual clear-cut definition on Vietnamese-style Zen Buddhism that I've seen anywhere. I haven't been able to find anything more than cursory details online, so I was really glad to find this book.

This book is definitely not for a casual or curious Buddhist. This is definitely a heavy, industrial-strength reference to Buddhist terms in various countries, but for a series researcher this is an invaluable resource.

The book itself comes in very nice sturdy binding, with soft white pages and nice formatting for easy reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Now an Excellent Resource! 29. November 2013
Von Mitra Bishop - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Originally I downloaded the Dictionary to my Kindle and was hugely disappointed because it was not AT THAT TIME searchable. HOWEVER, since then the publisher has revised the Kindle edition to make it searchable and also to preserve the links within subjects. I've downloaded the newly revised version, and it is quite different now. So now it rates a full five stars. To have a document like this one, so rich in resources, is a true gift! Please do know that, due to the comprehensive nature of this book, your search may not be instantaneously rewarded, but persevere and it will be! Mitra BishopThe Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous! Just about Perfect! 29. Juli 2014
Von Wendy S. King - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
WOW! Well-done,Noble Sons of Noble Families!
This dictionary is totally wonderful! Everything is in it including Pali, Sanskrit: both Buddhist and not, Tibetan in Wylie with a phonetic cross-reference for readers who don't know Tibetan, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and English.

Descriptions are full and where debates regarding translation have arisen, they are mentioned. There are maps, timelines, brief histories, and pronunciation guides. Monasteries and historical locations are mentioned. I love this dictionary! It's what I have been waiting for all these years! I have given it as a gift to sangha members also, and you should have seen the huge grins! LOL!

The big problem appears to be the use of Wylie for Tibetan spelling. There is a way around this problem in the text. The dictionary includes an appendix of Tibetan Phonetic Cross-References (pp. 1259-1265), which will enable you to look up Tibetan terms by a typical phonetic rendering. The authors do want to reach a broader public, not just fellow scholars. Nevertheless, as a laywoman, I would prefer the common usage of several other scholars: a phonetic rendering followed by Wylie, Sanscrit, or Pali as needed.

I highly recommend this dictionary without reservation. It is well worth the cost and will last you for years of happy sleuthing!The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism

5.0 von 5 Sternen Valuable, readable reference, with extraordinarily well designed tools 16. Juli 2014
Von Frank - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an outstanding encyclopedic dictionary, with excellent articles and extra features that will benefit both casual and serious students of Buddhism for many years. The writing is excellent: clear, concise, and highly informative, inviting browsing and exploration. I'm relatively new to the history of Buddhism, and would have found the Pali and Sanskrit cross-references especially helpful, since writers in English don't use either consistently.

Two tables at the beginning are more comprehensive than similar tables that I've seen elsewhere. The chronology of Chinese historical periods is more complete and more detailed than I would have expected. The Korean and Japanese chronologies are a little simpler and also extend to the present day. I'm not sure why the Indian chronology stops at 1343, nearly 300 years prior to Babur, the first Mughal emperor. It would be good to at least include the date range for the Mughal empire.

The timeline table of Buddhism is so good that it would be useful as an insert that could be taken out of the book, together with maps. The timeline has 6 headings: India; Sri Lanka; SE Asia; E Asia; Tibet/Central Asia; and General World History. This provides a terrific overview of the world history of Buddhism. I especially like the way that the early parts show a variety of birth and death dates for Buddha, with the sources of the dates.

The maps are also very well done. While studying on my own, I made notes on the map of India of major cities in the life of Buddha and in the history of Asoka, with both the old and modern place names. The first two maps include locations of the pillars of Asoka - a valuable resource since these are important original sources for the history of Asoka, who did much to enable the spread of Buddhism. The geographically broad coverage continues with maps of Ancient China, Korea, and Tibet.

The multilingual cross-references at the end are a really great feature. I mentioned earlier that I especially like the Sanskrit and Pali cross-references. The Chinese, Japanese, and Korean cross-references include the terms in characters. For Tibetan, there is an extra phonetic cross-reference.

The List of Lists, of concepts associated with numbers, is fun to browse through.

I looked over entries for Sakyamuni, Mahayana, Theravada, Asoka, and for several of the important Buddhist texts, and found with all of these that they were very well written, very informative, yet detailed enough to satisfy a reader who wants to delve further into the topics.

In summary, this is a valuable resource for anyone interested in Buddhism.
