Islands of Religiosity
This chapter explores the future of lay Buddhism in China, arguing that, while the numbers of both lay Buddhists and Buddhist religious sites are growing, they remain separated by the state from a larger public sphere. This separation limits the influence of Buddhist-based morality on urban Chinese society at large. At the same time, however, it creates a space for those marginalized within that society to gather with others who share their ways of thinking and being and to pursue creative projects of self and identity making in a welcoming environment.
