This chapter analyzes the conditions of Buddhism within Sipsongpannā. It describes the religious field of Sipsongpannā, aspects of village Buddhism, the monastic careers of Dai-lue men and the organization of the Sangha. While the chapter situates village Buddhism in the region as “local,” it also seeks to complicate how “local” forms of Buddhism interact with and are conditioned by national and transnational forms as well.

Keywords:   Sipsongpannā, village Buddhism, local, monks and novices, Sangha organization, monastic careers
