This is the first in-depth guide to Buddhism in North America, introducing the many facets of Buddhist practice andd belief, highlighting the unique development of Buddhism in the West, as well as offering detailed listings to over a thousand meditation centers.

The fourth part covers nonsectarian groups. Each part begins with several essays by leading Buddhist teachers, scholars, and long-time students to introduce the philosophy and practices of that particular school. Then follow listings of hundreds of centers and meditation groups identified with that tradition, with brief descriptions of each center's facilities, the schedule of regular practices and special retreats, information about teacher lineages, and full contact information. The listings are enhanced by over a hundred photographs of the centers and their teachers, as well as by sidebars highlighting their unique features, practices, and events.
