Short biography
Dr. Prebish has published 21 books and more than 75 scholarly articles and chapters. His book Buddhist Monastic Discipline (1975) revitalized modern study of the Buddhist monastic disciplinary code, and his 1999 volume Luminous Passage: The Practice and Study of Buddhism in America is considered the classic volume of the Western Buddhist tradition. Dr. Prebish is the leading pioneer in the establishment of the study of Western Buddhism as a sub-discipline in Buddhist Studies. In 1993 he held the Numata Chair in Buddhist Studies at the University of Calgary as Distinguished Visiting Professor, and in 1997 was awarded a Rockefeller Foundation National Humanities Fellowship for research at the University of Toronto.
