Book Review The Buddhist Dead edited by Bryan J Cuevas and Jacqueline I Stone [Book Review]

Swami Narasimhananda
Prabuddha Bharata
The giving up of the body or suicide for spiritual reasons has been dealt with by James Benn and D Max Moermane. The relationships of the dead and the living are discussed by Bryan J Cuevas, John Cliff ord Holt, and Matthew T Kapstein, while Hank Glassman, Mark Rowe, and Jason A Carbine talk about different funeral practices. With glossaries for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters and an elaborate index, this book is a unique peek into Buddhist practices regarding the dead and deserves attention by researchers, students, and admirers of this religion.
