Investigating "discipline" in Buddhism
BLUE Fellow
Winter
2020

Background

How can we best approach the multifaceted nature of Buddhist traditions within the confines of academia? I am an MA student in the School of Religious Studies at McGill, and my project explores the theme of "discipline" present in Buddhist discourses throughout time and space. I will draw from a variety of sources, ranging from Gandhāran inscriptions to postmodern treatises, and examine how they interact with one another to shape our perception and understanding of Buddhist traditions.
