The Vinaya Practices in Contemporary Chinese Buddhism

Dr. Tzu-Lung Chiu (Max-Planck-Institut Göttingen)


The Vinaya Practices in Contemporary Chinese Buddhism: A Cross-Strait Perspective on Buddhist Nunneries

The lecture centres on the contemporary revival of Chinese Mahāyāna Buddhism, and includes cross-Straits comparative typological study of Buddhist institutions and monastic religious practices. The lecturer's approach links theory, e.g., the Vinaya Piṭaka, with practice as observed via ethnographic fieldwork, with the aim of deepening our understanding of how Buddhist traditions are practised in modern society.
