This book argues that people in different parts of America experience Buddhism through lenses and circumstances supplied by the surrounding culture, and Buddhism impacts how those people navigate their regional culture. Its themes of pluralism and regionalism calls for attention to place (body, artifact, room, building, neighborhood, region) and movement in the study of American Buddhism. In this conclusion, final thoughts on American Buddhist places are presented. It also provides additional details for how regionalism can be explored in American Buddhism, including possibilities for future research.

Keywords:   America, Buddhism, culture, regional culture, pluralism, regionalism, American Buddhism
