Dai-Lue Monastic Networks

Educating Monks

Thomas A. Borchert

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines the networks along which the monks of Sipsongpannā travel. While it is well-known that Buddhist monks travel, the scope and directions of these trips is not well-understood. Following a central theme of the book, the chapter examines the local, national and transnational networks along which the Dai-lue monks travel. These networks, which include economies of merit, educational travel and those created by Chinese institutions such as the Buddhist Association, interact with each other in complicate ways. Transnational networks for example are limited in some ways by the Chinese policies, just as they are enabled by them.

Keywords:   networks-local, national, transnational, Buddhist Association, Sipsongpanna, China, nodes, spoke, economy of merit
