Daniela Campo : « Take the Vinaya as Your Master » – mai 2023


Daniela Campo a dirigé avec Esther Bianchi l'ouvrage Take the Vinaya as Your Master. Monastic Discipline and Practices in Modern Chinese Buddhism (Brill, 2023), huitième volume de la collection "Studies on East Asian Religions".   Vous pourrez y lire, en plus des directrice de l'ouvrage, Ji Zhe avec une contribution intitulée "Retaking the Monastic Precepts: Shanghai Lay Buddhists' Struggle for Authenticity of Monkhood in the 1980s".


"This volume explores the role played by monastic discipline in the emergence and evolution of modern Chinese Buddhism. A central feature of the Buddhist tradition, monastic discipline has received growing attention in the contemporary Buddhist world, but little from scholars. Adopting a diachronic perspective and a multidisciplinary approach, contributions by leading scholars investigate relevant Vinaya-related practices in twentieth and twenty-first centuries China and Taiwan, including issues of monastic identity and authenticity, updated ordination procedures, recent variations of Mahāyāna precepts and rules, and original perspectives on body movement and related sport activities. The restoration and renewal of Vinaya practices and standards within Chinese Buddhist practices shed new light on the response of Buddhist leaders and communities to the challenges of modernity."
