Buddhist Precept and Practice: Traditional Buddhism in the Rural Highlands of Ceylon
Richard F Gombrich
At the time this book was originally published in 1971, it was seen as a ground breaking research into the development of Buddhist belief and practice as it developed over two and a half millennia. Gombrich concluded that Buddhism, as practiced at the village level, was sufficiently conservative that it had not changed significantly in this time.
