From Booklist
This encyclopedia covers fairs, texts, doctrine, rituals, practices, biographies, deities and heroes, structure, mythology, sects, and associations of the spiritual culture lined. one of the greater than 1,700 entries are Dogen Kigan, Filial piety, and Shikhin Buddha. a lot of the content material includes brief, dictionary-type definitions, even though a few (for instance, Bodhisattva precepts, Buddha, Pilgrimage) are extra expansive. The illustrations are all black and white, happen on nearly one-quarter of the pages, and customarily conceal under part a web page. The entries comprise huge cross-references, and the "Contents via Subject" first and foremost of the encyclopedia aids the reader in finding thematically comparable entries. The assurance of the topic components is good.
The encyclopedia might have been vastly more desirable with the inclusion of glossaries giving the phrases within the a variety of languages concerned. A thesaurus of Sanskrit, chinese language characters, pinyin and Wade-Giles chinese language transliteration tools, and transliterated jap might considerably raise the software. even supposing the quantity is enough for the final reader, this conspicuous omission limits its usefulness for the worse researcher.

Public libraries that experience no different assets on Zen Buddhism may additionally reflect on it. RBB
