Based on anthropological fieldwork and historical research, this volume dispels the common notion that Buddhism is not a missionary religion by revealing Asian Buddhists as active agents in the propagation of their faith. The essays dea with both foreign and domestic missions and the activities of migrant communities, showing the resources and strategies garnered by late nineteenth-century and twentieth-century Buddhists. With case studies of Theravada, Chinese and Tibetan Buddhist teachers and congregations, as well as the Pure Land, Shingon, Zen and Soka Gakkai traditions of Japan.
