Edinburgh Buddhist Studies - In conversation

In this event, the second of Edinburgh Buddhist Studies' In Conversation series, Dr Ian Astley hosted Dr Paulus Kaufmann (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich) to discuss the place of Shingon Buddhism in Buddhist Studies. 

The Shingon school of Buddhism is one of the main traditions in Japan, yet it does not feature prominently in many accounts.

In the session, Ian and Paulus discussed why they became involved in studying Shingon Buddhism and what they see as its principal value for our studies.
