Theravada Buddhism in Southeast Asia
Lecture no. 9 from the course: Buddhism
Taught by Professor Malcolm David Eckel | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
The arrival of the first Buddhist missionaries in Sri Lanka led to the Theravada Buddhism that now predominates in Southeast Asia. Part of this tradition is the concept of the "righteous King," which continues to link Buddhist practice with political involvement.
