Remains of Buddhism in Afghanistan: an overview and an update on more recent archaeological projects
The presence of Buddhism in Afghanistan is well-documented from the accounts of Chinese Buddhist pilgrims from the seventh century onwards; however, the archaeology of Afghanistan has long been perilous and problematic. After major discoveries by French, German, British and Japanese teams in the early to mid-twentieth century, conflict, war and political upheaval shut down exploration for many decades. Apart from the issues of systematic looting during times of civil conflict, open cast mining beneath the Mes Aynak hill in the dangerous Logar Province in the last decade has prompted a concerted international effort to rescue and preserve a little-known regional Buddhist hill site. This illustrated talk will focus on the Mes Aynak discoveries after a presentation of the more general context of Buddhist traces in Afghanistan.
Royce Wiles currently lectures in Buddhist Studies at Nan Tien Institute in Wollongong. His academic interests include Buddhist and Jain texts and textual traditions, as well as Buddhist doctrine and practice (including meditation techniques). Royce spent nine years working with a research agency in Kabul and will talk about work with the National Museum of Afghanistan and more general issues about Buddhist archaeology in Afghanistan.

- Re: REQUEST> Buddhism on Death and Dying
by Brad CloughDear Colleagues,
Recently I was asked to present a series of lectures on death and dying in Buddhism. To prepare for this, I of course want to consult as many relevant primary and secondary sources on this issue as possible. Of course, I do not ask that anyone do my own research for me, but my strong hunch is that several of you already have at hand bibliographies and/or syllabis on this topic. The H-Buddhism editors have advised me that it would be best if you first sent your lists to me offline. Once I have collected all the responses, I will post all my findings in an organized format to the whole list.
Many Thanks to All!

by Charles DiSimonePosting on behalf of Jonathan Silk:
The only reason to forward the link below--which may be primarily, or only, interesting to colleagues in the US--is that the scholar involved is Paul Griffiths, whom you may know from an earlier stage of his career when he specialized in Buddhist philosophy, and in fact was one of the very leadingmost figures in its study, before leaving the field entirely in favor of Catholic theology.
I express no opinion about the content of the current controversy, and dare to bring it to your attention only because of the identity of the protagonist. (I should note, however, that this is not an entirely marginal issue; I learnt of it first from the Chronicle of Higher Education, hardly a fringe publication.)
(Please note when reading that the link is not from an unbiased source and shares opinion with fact - Ed.)
