Description

Interdisciplinary in its approach, this book explores the dilemmas that Buddhism faces in relation to the continuing ethnic conflict and violence in modern Sri Lanka.

Prominent scholars in the fields of anthropology, history, Buddhist studies and Pali examine multiple dimensions of the problem.

Buddhist responses to the crisis are discussed in detail, along with how Buddhism can help to create peace in Sri Lanka.

Evaluating the role of Buddhists and their institutions in bringing about an end to war and violence as well as possibly heightening the problem, this collection puts forward a critical analysis of the religious conditions contributing to continuing hostilities.
