Expressions of the Inexpressible: The Princeton Dictionary Of Buddhism

SAAC+Book+Launch+invitationIn an event launching the recently published book The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism, two eminent scholars of Buddhism—Robert E. Buswell, Jr. and Donald S. Lopez, Jr.—come to LACMA to present their process and research in developing the book. The publication features over 5,000 entries totaling over a million words—the most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of Buddhism ever produced in English. Buswell and Lopez also speak about how Buddhism can be understood through resources presented in the book. A book signing follows the lecture.

Robert E. Buswell, Jr. is the Irving and Jean Stone Endowed Chair in Humanities at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he is also Distinguished Professor of Buddhist Studies and the founding director of the Center for Buddhist Studies.

Donald S. Lopez, Jr. is the Arthur E. Link Distinguished University Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies at the University of Michigan.
