Description

The Buddha's nirvana marks one of the pivotal moments in the history of Buddhism. My book explores how this event was made into a powerful allegory of survival in premodern China through the nirvana image. In diverse settings, the motif compelled devotees to redefine what the Buddhist faith meant in their lives.
