This book brings together the recent work of twelve scholars from a variety of disciplines - anthropology, art history, history, and religion - to highlight their various findings and perspectives on different facets of Bodhgayā's past and present. Through an engaging and critical overview of the place of Buddha's enlightenment, the book discusses the dynamic and contested nature of this site, and looks at the tensions with the on-going efforts to define the place according to particular histories or identities. It addresses many aspects of Bodhgayā, from speculation about why the Buddha chose to sit beneath a tree in Bodhgayā, to the contemporary struggles over tourism development, education and non-government organizations, to bring to the foreground the site's longevity, reinvention and current complexity as a UNESCO World Heritage monument in the north Indian state of Bihar. The book is a useful contribution for students and scholars of Buddhism and South Asian Studies"--Provided by publisher.
