|Title:||Three studies in non-tantric Buddhist cult forms|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis attempts to present three to present three separate but related bodies of material which might contribute towards the eventual establishment of a new basic descriptive category in the field of Buddhist Studies: non-trantric pūjā. The first part deals with a previously unacknowledged form of the relic-cult; the second, with an equally unacknowledged cult of the book; the third with the image-cult. A fourth part indicates a few problematic factors involved in future research in the area.</p>|
