Raoul Birnbaum holds a doctorate in Buddhism and Chinese Religions from Columbia University. He is now a member of the Department of Religion at Princeton University.
"Birnbaum's excellent book is a study of one of the most important Buddhas, the 'Master of Healing, ' who specializes in healing illness, psychological and physical. After a chapter on the role of healing in Buddhism, the book discusses the various Buddhas and scriptures involved in this process, and the rituals through which curative power is released. A scholarly, sympathetic, and well-written book."--Religious Studies Review "One couldn't ask for a better book on this very interesting subject."--Philosophy East & West "A valuable contribution to our understanding of an aspect of Buddhism hitherto little known in the West."--John Blofeld
