Anagarika Dharmapala: Buddhism’s Global Advocate

5 out of 5

This product is a book titled “Rescued from the Nation” by Steven Kemper. It reevaluates the life and legacy of Anagarika Dharmapala, an influential figure in Sri Lanka’s history. The book presents a different perspective of Dharmapala, portraying him as a spiritual seeker rather than just a nationalist hero. The author draws on a wealth of sources, including nearly one hundred diaries and notebooks, to provide an in-depth analysis of Dharmapala’s travels and his lifelong project of creating a unified Buddhist world. The book challenges the commonly held view of Dharmapala and offers a fresh understanding of Sri Lanka’s political awakening intertwined with religious pursuits. It is available in hardcover with 480 pages and is published by the University of Chicago Press. The book has an ISBN-10 of 022619907X and an ISBN-13 of 978-0226199078.
