Buddhadharma : Fall 2008
and three non- or multi-denominational (or what Don Mor- reale called “Buddhayana” in his Complete Guide to Bud- dhist America, published in 1998). This latter category is particularly interesting because it reflects a growing change in the composition of Buddhist groups now populating the American Buddhist landscape. In the 1980s and 1990s, when initial studies of the Ameri- can Buddhist movement began to appear in the scholarly and popular literature, groups tended to be divided either by their ethnic or “convert” status—the “two Buddhisms” I wrote about in my early publications on this topic—or by the lines of transmission of a particular tradition, referred to first by Jan Nattier as “import,” “export,” and “ethnic” Buddhism. In the 1990s, Paul Numrich sought to harmonize some of these distinctions by using the terms “Asian immigrant Bud- dhists” and “American convert Buddhists” and pointing out that some of these groups existed in “parallel congregations” in which these two units occupied the same geographic temple space, but at different times and utilizing different practices. By the turn of the new century, when researchers such as Jeff Wilson, Shannon Hickey, and others began investigating more and newer American Buddhist communities, the buzz- word became “hybridity.” That is to say, traditional sectarian lines, ethnic divisions, and lines of transmission began to blur in favor of useful cross-fertilization of Buddhist traditions, breeding a kind of Buddhist ecumenicism.

Prior to that he taught at Pennsylvania state University for thirty-five years. he has written and edited numerous books on buddhism, including Luminous Passage: The Practice and Study of Buddhism in America and Westward Dharma.
