Theravada Buddhism by Richard F. Gombrich Theravada Buddhism, Paperback (June 2006)

"Theravada Buddhism" is widely recognised as the classic introduction to the branch of Buddhism found in Sri Lanka and parts of South East Asia. Written by a leading authority on Theravada Buddhism, this book takes account of the research, including the controversies of the date of the Buddha and social and political developments in Sri Lanka.

Buddhist Daily Ritual by Richard F. Gombrich Buddhist Daily Ritual, Hardback (February 2002)

This text presents findings of research on a particular form of Buddhist ritual practised by Sakyas and Vajracaryas, the inheritors of the monastic tradition and the highest Buddhist castes among the Newars, the indigenous people of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.

World of Buddhism by Richard F. Gombrich World of Buddhism, Paperback (September 1991)

Describes the teachings of the Buddha, looks at Buddhism in India, Burma, Thailand, China, Korea, and Japan, and looks at Buddhist history, sects, shrines, and temples.

Buddhism Transformed by Richard F. Gombrich Buddhism Transformed, Paperback (October 1990)

As the Sinhalas themselves perceive it, Buddhism proper has always shared the religious arena with a spirit religion. While Buddhism concerns salvation, the spirit religion focuses on worldly welfare. This work describes and analyzes the changes that have profoundly altered the character of Sinhala religion in both areas.
