    The Sutta on Understanding Death in the Transmission of Borān Meditation From Siam to the Kandyan Court.Kate Crosby, Andrew Skilton & Amal Gunasena - 2012 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 40 (2):177-198.
    This article announces the discovery of a Sinhalese version of the traditional meditation ( borān yogāvacara kammaṭṭhāna ) text in which the Consciousness or Mind, personified as a Princess living in a five-branched tree (the body), must understand the nature of death and seek the four gems that are the four noble truths. To do this she must overcome the cravings of the five senses, represented as five birds in the tree. Only in this way will she permanently avoid the (...)

    Heresy and Monastic Malpractice in the Buddhist Court Cases (Vinicchaya) of Modern Burma.Janaka Ashin & Kate Crosby - 2017 - Contemporary Buddhism 18 (1):199-261.
    Over the past four decades, Buddhists in Burma, mainly monks, have been brought before Sangha courts charged with heresy, adhamma, and malpractice, avinaya, under the jurisdiction of the State Sanghamahanayaka Committee. This body, established under General Ne Win in 1980, oversees the regulation and conduct of the Sangha. The religious courts that try these cases have the backing of state law enforcement agencies: failure to comply with their judgements is punishable by imprisonment. A guilty verdict has been passed in all (...)

    Poetic Dhamma and the Zare: Traditional Styles of Teaching Theravada Amongst the Shan of Northern Thailand.Kate Crosby & Jotika Khur-Yearn - 2010 - Contemporary Buddhism 11 (1):1-26.
    In the Theravada Buddhism of the Shan peoples of northern Burma and Thailand, the main medium for the transmission of complex teachings is an elaborate form of poetry. The scholars who preserve and perform the readings of such teachings are called zare. Mostly they are laymen, although some are women and a few are monks. This article examines how the zare acquire their extraordinary erudition, the challenges confronting the tradition in the face of political suppression, modernity and minority language status, (...)

    Terms of Engagement: Text, Technique and Experience in Scholarship on Theravada Meditation.Andrew Skilton, Kate Crosby & Pyi Phyo Kyaw - 2019 - Contemporary Buddhism 20 (1-2):1-35.
    ABSTRACTThis article examines the term kammaṭṭhāna in three contexts. It begins by looking at the rare usage in the Pali canon where it denotes secular work, but is extended to include the work of the ascetic. It then looks at its usage in the commentarial period to denote the meditation subjects for samatha meditation, and where extensions of this to include vipassanā also occur. Finally, the article looks at kammaṭṭhāna in early modern Southeast Asia in the context of a variety (...)

    Abhidhamma and Nimitta in Eighteenth-Century Meditation Manuscripts From Sri Lanka: A Consideration of Orthodoxy and Heteropraxy in Boran Kammaṭṭhāna.Kate Crosby - 2019 - Contemporary Buddhism 20 (1-2):111-151.
    ABSTRACTThe Nevill Collection of manuscripts from Sri Lanka housed in the British Library includes seventeen texts, in eleven manuscripts, related to a type of Theravada Buddhist meditation referred to here as boran kammaṭṭhāna, ‘the old meditation method.’ This article offers the first detailed survey of these texts and finds a close correlation between the practices they advocate and commentarial Abhidhamma, a surprising finding given the modern reputation of these practices as heteroprax. It is less surprising when we observe that the (...)

    Reducing Suffering During Conflict: The Interface Between Buddhism And International Humanitarian Law.Andrew Bartles-Smith, Kate Crosby, Peter Harvey, P. D. Premasiri, Asanga Tilakaratne, Daniel Ratheiser, Mahinda Deegalle, Noel Maurer Trew, Stefania Travagnin & Elizabeth Harris - 2020 - Contemporary Buddhism 21 (1-2):369-435.
    ABSTRACT This article stems from a project launched by the International Committee of the Red Cross in 2017 to examine the degree to which Buddhism might complement or enhance international humanitarian law, also known as ‘the law of war’ or ‘the law of armed conflict’. Given that Buddhist teachings discourage violence, scholarship has critiqued Buddhists’ involvement in armed conflict rather than considered how Buddhism might contribute to regulating the conduct of hostilities once war has broken out. Yet the Buddhist aim (...)

    Kamma, Social Collapse or Geophysics? Interpretations of Suffering Among Sri Lankan Buddhists in the Immediate Aftermath of the 2004 Asian Tsunami.Kate Crosby - 2008 - Contemporary Buddhism 9 (1):53-76.
    In the immediate aftermath of the 2004 Asian tsunami, those affected struggled to come to terms with the scale of the disaster. This article documents the initial response in religious terms to the calamity by Buddhists in Sri Lanka. It looks at the interpretations they proposed for the causes of such suffering.1 The account given here is based mainly on conversations and fieldwork conducted in Sri Lanka within the first fortnight after the tsunami.2 The places, temples and organisations I visited (...)
