Paths to Liberation: The Marga and Its Transformations in Buddhist Thought

Edited by Robert E. Buswell Jr. and Robert M. Gimello

This collection contributes to several different areas of concern in the contemporary study of religion, e.g., the generalization of concepts rooted in the Western religious tradition, the importance of emic categories, and the relation between discursive thought and liberating experience
