Study of Mysticism in Chinese Buddhist Monks and Nuns

The social science exploration of mysticism has included an effort to determine whether there exists a mystical common core across religions. Previous studies have identified experiential commonalities across a range of spiritual and religious faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Persian Islam. This study of Chinese Pure Land and Chan Buddhist monks and nuns show a high correlation between Buddhist mystical experience and the common core of experiences across religious and spiritual traditions. The survey has been released and archived on the Association of Religion Data Archives, an online archive of high-quality surveys and research articles.
