  1. New Book for Buddhist Communities

New Book for Buddhist Communities

by Nathaniel Michon
Hello everyone,
Although not a "Buddhist Studies" book, I thought many of you might be interested in this somewhat hefty volume I've been completing on the side over the past few years - co-edited with Danny Fisher, including about 50 scholars and experts from a variety of fields to give a little guidance in areas the average monk or meditation leader might not have training and background:
[if the book actually recoups production costs, proceeds will go to Buddhist Global Relief]
A Thousand Hands: A Guidebook to Caring for Your Buddhist Community
More information is available here while a brief introductory excerpt and contents follow below.

"As a Buddhist community leader—or even a concerned community member—we may have read many sutras, practiced thousands of hours of meditation, or become well versed in Buddhist philosophy, but that does not prepare us for every situation we will face. It is very natural that people turn to a spiritual or religious community in times of trouble, and when such a person comes our hearts may fill with compassion and want to do whatever we can to ease their suffering. However, our beautifully diverse world also brings forth a countless array of problematic situations. One individual may struggle with clinical depression. Another might have serious financial hardships. Or maybe we are wondering how to best get the children and youth in our community more involved. Abrahamic training in the West includes many of these aspects and there are plenty of books from Abrahamic perspectives which help accentuate that knowledge in various ways. However, conversations with Buddhists in the West show that both such training and resources are often lacking.
Of course, this book will not provide all the answers you need for every situation. It is simply one guidebook; it is a beginning, created from many of the issues we heard people struggling with in their communities, inspired by the compassion of so many wonderful hearts caring for others around them. This book simply aims to provide some brief passages of guidance on how to handle issues, necessary background information, practical tips on what you can do, and information about further resources. There were so many topics to include and cover, and, unfortunately, we could not make this book encompass everything. There are other issues we had hoped to include but that did not make it into the present work for various reasons (e.g., sleep disorders, chronic pain, creating a social media presence for your community, crisis caregiving, creating and managing youth groups, etc.). It is our hope that this volume will not be the one and only resource, but the just the beginning."

SEMINAR> Dr Michael Stanley-Baker (Max Planck Institute, Berlin), ‘New digital and critical tools for the history of medicine and religion’ (Wellcome Library)

by Richard Mahoney
Dear colleagues,
I thought the following seminar at the Wellcome Library would be of interest to subscribers of H-Buddhism:
Tuesday 17 January:
Dr Michael Stanley-Baker (Max Planck Institute, Berlin), ‘New digital and critical tools for the history of medicine and religion’
Historians of medicine in China have increasingly come to recognise the role of religious actors in providing healthcare, and acknowledge that they were much more accessible and widespread than classically trained doctors, particularly in the early imperial period.  As specific hotspots of medical pluralism come into sharper view, it raises the question of how the medico-religious market was structured and what changes emerged over time. I argue in this paper that by studying the ways different communities aggregated sets or repertoires of practices, we can better understand how these repertoires shaped identity, structured relations with other care providers, and served as sites for negotiating difference between the religious and the medical. Furthermore, this focus on repertoires affords more flexibility to explain how practices, materials and terminology circulated across supposedly distinct sectarian and epistemic domains such as Buddhism, Daoism and Confucianism. This analysis underlies a digital project (https://cpianalysis.org/2016/09/27/new-digital-tools-for-the-history-of-medicine-and-relig...) at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science to data-mine early Buddhist, Daoist and medical literature for therapeutic practices, and to model their distribution within textual corpuses and across space and time.  This year’s pilot project focusses on materia medica in textual corpora from ca. 300 BCE to 589 CE, but can be used to study any set of practices, materials or terms, and can be scaled to encompass much larger textual sets.

Location: Wellcome Library, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE.
Doors at 6pm prompt, seminars will start at 6.15pm.
The History of Pre-Modern Medicine seminar series is focused on pre-modern medicine, which we take to cover European and non-European history before the 20th century (antiquity, medieval and early modern history, some elements of 19th-century medicine). The seminars are open to all. The series is organised by a group of historians of medicine based at London universities and hosted by the Wellcome Library.

CONFERENCE> "Buddhist Statecraft in East Asia: A Conference of Storytellers"

by Stephanie Balkwill
This conference will take place at the University of Southern California from Feb. 10-12, 2017 and will bring together twenty-five scholars from Canada, the US, China, Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Vietnam in order to engage in an interdisciplinary and comparative study of Buddhist statecraft, which will include historians, anthropologists, textual scholars, and art historians. Through the medium of storytelling, the paper presenters will explore how Buddhism has been an important means of securing imperial legitimation and political power, as well as an effective partner in the running of a state, since its arrival in China in the third century of the Common Era and subsequent spread to the rest of East Asia. As such, the conference will also illuminate, explore, and challenge the role that Chinese culture has played in the development of East Asian political and religious systems in general.

NEW BOOK> Boris Oguibénine. A Descriptive Grammar of Buddhist Sanskrit. The language of the Textual Tradition of the Mahāsāṃghika-Lokottoravādins.

by Richard Mahoney
Dear friends and colleagues,
I am delighted to announce that  a new book on Buddhist Sanskrit has just been published:
Boris Oguibénine. A Descriptive Grammar of Buddhist Sanskrit. The language of the Textual Tradition of the Mahāsāṃghika-Lokottoravādins. General Introduction. Sound Patterns. Sandhi Patterns (484 pp.), 2016. Journal of Indo-European Studies Monograph 64, Institute for the Study of Man,  Washington DC.
ISBN Hardback: 978-0-9983669-0-6
ISBN Paperback: 978-0-9983669-1-3
Summary
This book is the first detailed description of the phonetics of Buddhist Sanskrit as shown in the textual tradition of the Buddhist sect known as Mahāsāṃghika-Lokottoravādins. The texts use the language which undoubtedly bears the marks of Middle Indian influence,  mostly of Pāli. However,  as widely recognized,  this language is not identical with Pāli or any other Middle Indian dialect. F. Edgerton’s pioneer grammar of this language (New Haven: Yale University Press,  1953),  which he called “Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit” allows only a limited space to its phonetics. The present book contains an analysis of the phonetic evidence of all available texts of the Mahāsāṃghika-Lokottoravādins. Several of them have been published after Edgerton’s demise,  and their data had necessarily to be incorporated in our analysis.
Special emphasis is made on the fact that this language does not owe its shape to either Middle Indian dialect,  but is a language on its own,  with its own peculiar structural constraints and features.
Particularly,  to account for its mixed nature,  all occurrences of sound and their sequences are thoroughly examined with special attention to the alternations taking place within the texts and their layers,  probably pointing to the language habits of the speakers of different Middle Indian dialects,  which contributed to the production of the textual tradition that stood in the midway between Hīnayāna’s and Mahāyāna’s texts.
The intricate problem of sandhi patterns is also given much attention as it is generally believed that these patterns were subject to no constraints whatsoever.
This volume on the phonetics should be followed by further volumes dedicated to morphological and syntactic patterns of this language.
Regards and best wishes for the New Year,
Boris OGUIBENINE, Professor (rtd.)
University  of Strasbourg
France
