Preface 
The centrality of death rituals has in anthropologically informed studies of Buddhism been little documented. The current volume brings together a range of perspectives on Buddhist death rituals including ethnographic,textual, historical and theoretically informed accounts, and presents thediversity of the Buddhist funeral cultures of mainland Southeast Asia andChina. It arises out of the University of Bristol
s Centre for BuddhistStudies research project
Buddhist Death Rituals in Southeast Asia anChina 
, funded by the UK 
s Arts and Humanities Research Council(AHRC). This project involved extensive new research in Thailand, Laosand China. Other items from that project included several public exhibi-tions, extensive stills photographs and several video
lms. The project teamproduced two

-minute
lms on the Ghost Festival in Laos and China,one on urban funerals in Chiang Mai (Thailand) and several shorter clipsdealing with funeral cultures in Laos, Thailand and China. Most of thismaterial (and an extensive bibliography on the topic) is available free of charge from the project website located at the webpage of the Departmentof Theology and Religious Studies (Centre for Buddhist Studies) at theUniversity of Bristol.It gives us great pleasure to thank the AHRC for the funding that madethis project possible. We also want to thank all those who contributed indifferent ways to its success, including those who took part in making andappearing in the
lms, all the contributors to this book and, in particular,the three research fellows/assistants who were involved during the lifetimeof the project: Rita Langer, who originally conceived the project and saw itsbirth as well as undertaking some of the research involved; Patrice Ladwig,who was the research fellow throughout the body of the project and under-took a great deal of the research and organisation involved; and Ailsa Laxton, whose wonderfully ef 
cient organisation and also expertise inputting on exhibitions came at just the right time. Thank you all so muchnotonlyforyourimpeccableef
