Tibetan Buddhism’s Death and Reincarnation

0 out of 5

This book explores the social and religious lives of deceased Tibetan Buddhist lamas, focusing on how posterior forms such as corpses, relics, reincarnations, and hagiographical representations extend a lama’s trajectory of lives. It delves into the everyday interrelations between lamas and their devotees, analyzing ritual performances and the enactment of lived tradition. The book also examines the sacred hagiographical conventions underlying local knowledge in Tibetan Buddhist culture. Offering a phenomenology of Tibetan Buddhist life, this ethnography provides a unique perspective on the embodiment of Tibetan Buddhism. It is of interest to researchers in social/cultural anthropology, religious studies, and Tibetan studies.
