Parading the Buddha

Author: Venerable Juewei

In her debut work, Ven. Juewei examines Buddhist acculturation – how cultures adapt to and interact with other cultures – through the history of Buddha’s birthday celebrations.  Ven. Juewei’s research brings to life historical accounts of grand Buddha image processions during the Northern Wei dynasty around the resplendent capital of Luoyang, then the largest city in the world.  Ven. Juewei provides analysis of how Buddha’s Birthday parades changed the politics, social makeup, and religious imagination of the people.
