Patheos: Calling All Asian American Buddhists

posted by Randall

BuddhismA master student at Graduate Theological Union and Institute of Buddhist Studies in Berkeley, California is seeking Asian American Buddhists to participate in a study on the experiences and opinions of Asian American Buddhists youth, reports Patheos.

Chenxing Han says its a perspective badly missed in any discussion on Buddhism in America.

She wrote: The aim of my MA thesis research is to gain a better understanding of how young adults of Asian heritage living in America engage with Buddhism. I was inspired to delve into this topic after noticing that I rarely came across the experiences and perspectives of young Asian American Buddhists in scholarly and popular literature about Buddhism. Personal visits to a diverse range of Buddhist temples and meditation centers have also motivated this research.”

Those interested can contact Han here.
