Summary

"This book fills an essential gap in our understanding of karma, particularly through chapters covering Japan, China, and Tibet. This material is fascinating and adds an entirely new dimension to the classical theory of karma as it developed in India." -- Wendy D. O'Flaherty

Karma and Rebirth: Post Classical Developments explains the religious concepts most central to Asian philosophy, religion, and society, presenting articles representative of contemporary understanding and practice. The contributors look not only at the understanding of karma and rebirth in modern India, but also in Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia, Tibet, China, Japan, and the Western world. This broad treatment underscores the fact that karma and rebirth have become part of the religious history and cultural fabric of the Western world.

The collection is divided into three sections. Part I deals with figures and movements of the Hindu renaissance in India in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Part II on Buddhism deals with Indian, Chinese, Tibetan, and Japanese treatments of karma. Part III is devoted to the influence of karma and rebirth in the Western world through theosophy, new religious movements, and recent developments in psychology.

Ronald W. Neufeldt is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Calgary. His publications include F. Max Muller and the Rig Veda.
