Oxford University Press.

The title of this priceless new reference work is a bit of a misnomer, in that it is really more a concise encyclopedia than an etymological authority. But with more than 2,000 entries and several helpful maps and appendixes, this volume, by Buddhist scholar Damien Keown of the University of London, belongs in the library of all Eastward-looking seekers, from those who have formally “taken refuge” to those who are just learning about the Middle Way.
