"This course will explore the musical cultures and soundscapes of Buddhism, ranging from monastic chants to classical music to modern pop music. We will study how sounds support practitioners in their personal cultivation and how music helps to communicate with Buddhist deities. We will read primary sources and secondary literature on Buddhism, as well as theoretical works on the study of sacred music. Additionally, we will listen to and analyze sound and video recordings.
