The Return of the Buddha traces the development of Buddhist archaeology in colonial India, examines its impact on the reconstruction of India?s Buddhist past, and the making of a public and academic discourse around these archaeological discoveries.
The book discusses the role of the state and modern Buddhist institutions in the reconstitution of national heritage through promulgation of laws for the protection of Buddhist monuments, acquiring of land around the sites, restoration of edifices, and organization of the display and dissemination of relics.
