Buddhist Learning in South Asia

Education, Religion, and Culture at the Ancient Sri Nalanda Mahavihara
This interdisciplinary study is the first book to provide a complete survey of Sri Nalanda Mahavihara from the perspective of its educational curricula as well as its religious influence. It provides detailed descriptions of the origin, growth, management, and academic and cultural life of Nalanda, with particular attention to its pedagogy, curriculum, teachers, and students. It also presents an alternative interpretation of nationalist and popular notions about Sri Nalanda as an international university and proves that it was, at its core, a Buddhist monastery and an institution of Buddhist learning focused on the study and promotion of Buddhism.
