IntroductionChapter 1. The Buddhist Medical TransmissionChapter 2. Translators and Translation PracticeChapter 3. Translating Medicine in Buddhist ScripturesChapter 4. Rewriting Buddhist MedicineChapter 5. Popularizing Buddhist MedicineConclusion
The transmission of Buddhism from India to China was one of the most significant cross-cultural exchanges in the premodern world. This cultural encounter involved more than the spread of religious and philosophical knowledge. It influenced many spheres of Chinese life, including the often overlooked field of medicine. Analyzing a wide variety of Chinese Buddhist texts, C. Pierce Salguero examines the reception of Indian medical ideas in medieval China. These texts include translations from Indian languages as well as Chinese compositions completed in the first millennium C.E.
