(p.219) 8 Rediscovering Lay Buddhism
Practicing Scripture

University of Hawai'i Press

In this final chapter, I return to some core issues, such as the important of venerating scripture, the kind of people who joined the movement, and the much-asserted messianic background of the movement. I conclude with a brief comparison of the Non-Action Teachings with the Reformation of sixteenth century Europe, showing some similarities (the focus on agency of the lay believer) and differences (the unimportance of the monastic community in the Chinese case).
