Book description

Buddhism is by most accounts the most peaceable of religions (at least in the simplified version that the West has received, which leaves out Buddhist warriors in Mongolia, Japan and elsewhere). Many have even called it passive. This volume by Stanley Jeyaraja Tambish is a reminder of how any religion can be used for political purposes, even violent ones. It is largely a history of how the Sinhalese Buddhists of newly independent Sri Lanka, including monks, performed that classic political trick of making the majority focus their frustration on a minority--in this case, the Hindu Tamils--pushing the island toward a long civil war. (The recent end of that civil war is not covered in this volume, originally published in the early nineties.) The little that the West knew about that civil war was the terrorism of the Tamil Tigers, gleaned from very occasional reporting after particularly horrific events. In Tambiahs view, the war was a result of a deliberate political movement--at times more than one, running against each other for control of the government--which vilified the Tamils as an enemy of the islands Buddhist Sinhalese heritage. (I leave alone the question obvious to any student of Buddhism as it is taught in the West, which is how something like the search for enlightenment through non-attachment can be betrayed). Not that the Tamils were entirely blameless, even before the terrorist attacks; Tambiah documents that they responded to violence with violence. But this is sad history, a reminder of how the vision of the brilliant religious innovator can be turned inside-out, how it becomes the embodiment of all that drove him to the despair from which enlightenment liberate him. Buddhism was in fact betrayed in Sri Lanka, not by those who were named as its enemies, but by those adherents who with their eyes not on what they claimed to believe but instead on power, did the naming.
