The Basham Lecture 1995 : The Role of the Laity in Modern Thai Buddhism
This introduction to modern Thai Buddhism is divided in five parts. First I describe the distance between most laymen and members of the Buddhist order of monks. Then some thought is given to the state and religion. Thirdly the Sangha's dependence upon lay approval. In the fourth part I introduce a series of charismatic leaders, both monks and lay persons and finally there are some analytical remarks.
